Overall Treatment Approach:
I take whatever sounds, syllables or words that a child can produce either spontaneously or in imitation and then use that to build more syllable/word structures depending on the articulatory placement and manner using target words that a child will have plenty of opportunities to practice throughout the day. As soon as possible, I try to use the rule of 3 to get in as much practice on a target as possible and use knowledge of performance feedback to get the child to understand what they are doing well. As soon as possible, I try to fade the cues and use more knowledge of results as well as random practice for generalization as we move forward onto novel sounds and syllable structures. I have the family practice previously targeted words in a variety of routines for maintenance. For older children, I work on embedding target words into phrases and then sentences in an effort to generalize coarticulatory proficiency.
Percent of CAS cases: 25
I have the parents of very young children practicing target words within a variety of routines throughout the day (play, snack, dressing, bathing, diaper changes/potty time, car rides, songs, book reading, etc). I teach them to use the rule of 3 to elicit as many responses as possible. I also teach the parent to position themselves so that the child can see their face and provide slow models. I also teach the parent to use gestural prompts and give the sounds relevant names to increase their reference and recall of the motor plan for those sounds. I usually construct a core vocabulary book for daily review and we add pictures as the child's sound/word skills improve. For preschool and older children, I provide worksheets with target words and try to develop games in which the child can have 10-15 minutes daily practice with the adult. I also encourage the parents to have structured dinner conversations with emphasis on the correct word productions during that time when possible. Book reading is also recommended to practice target words.
I am an active member in the Lehigh Valley Apraxia Network providing assistance to a parent support group along with speech-language pathologists Heather Hamilton and Heidi Beck. I help to organize and run the annual Apraxia Walk for Children. I co-organize and run an Apraxia Camp for Children each summer.
