Overall Treatment Approach:
My treatment approach varies depending on the individual I am serving. However, I base my treatment on the principles of motor learning, with a focus on identifying targets and providing initial mass practice. Based on my client's needs and motivation/participation level, I decide which approach (or combination of approaches) to take based on my training (DTTC, PROMPT, Kaufman, etc.). When choosing targets, I not only consider present levels and current abilities/movements, but also functional words that can fit into targets that are needed.
Percent of CAS cases: 20
Many of my parents have historically been present during my therapy sessions. When present, they are able to provide me with information on observations/progress seen at home and in the community, as well as observe session techniques and current targets in practice. If parents are not able to be present, I make parent communication a priority at the end of our sessions and occasionally provide video recordings so these parents can see what is happening in the therapy room. I also rely on parents to provide me with information about what currently motivates my clients, their current interests, and any other important information that may be incorporated or relevant to our sessions and treatment.
My involvement in the Apraxia community has mainly been with the parents and families that I serve. As I have learned more about Apraxia and gained additional training and experience, I look forward to becoming more involved with the community as a whole.
