Overall Treatment Approach:
It varies based on the individuals child's strengths and needs in all areas, not just speech and language. - Establish rapport - Assess attention and regulation, find ways to approve if needed - Make sure position/posture for speech is good. - Use strengths, needs, developmental appropriateness and family/client priorities to select targets. - Determine best way/activity to get most repetitions of target sounds/syllables/words/phrases. - Plan less structured activity for carryover if appropriate. - Use verbal/visual/tactile/gestural cues as needed, but try to fade out across sessions as success increases. - Give feedback on productions but carryover to self monitoring when appropriate. - Encourage parents to join session. - Provide activities/strategies for home carryover. - Work with parents to have the client attend the max recommended number of sessions per week. - Assess AAC options if needed. - Monitor language abilities throughout sessions if they're not being specifically targeted. - Incorporate literacy/preliteracy activities when possible. - Collaborate with other professionals as needed/co-treat with OT/PT if appropriate.
Percent of CAS cases: 5
- Review report and plan of care. Ask for parent questions and feedback. - Discuss the goals and why they have been chosen. - Encourage to join sessions if possible. If they cannot join the session, end treatment five minutes early to discuss the session with parents. - Provide specific carryover strategies and targets to work on. - Suggest games, routines, etc. that will help increase likelihood families will carryover practice at home.
