Overall Treatment Approach:
   In the beginning, I facilitate speech movement sequences to develop ‘core’ words (e.g. ‘help’, ‘all done’, ‘eat’) that help children attain functional verbal communication and reduce their frustration. I use verbal, visual, and tactile cues to elicit specific speech movements and coordination. I educate parents about CAS and coach them on techniques used in therapy for home carryover - providing continuity and reinforcement of skills. The use of AAC may be considered to give the child a way to communicate while working on verbal expression. I try to use activities/games that are naturally repetitive and keep children engaged. Increasing the level of sound sequence complexity will continue throughout the course of therapy to increase intelligibility.

Percent of CAS cases: 20

Parent Involvement:
   - Parents are given an explanation of what CAS is, will be encouraged to ask questions, and be informed on the importance and intensity of treatment sessions and home programs - Parents will be taught the importance of repetition and practice for home

Community Involvement:
   I have had a long-term passion for increasing my knowledge of CAS through continuing education and observation of treatment sessions with seasoned therapists On my personal website, I provide ways for parents to increase their child's interest and desire to practice their speech in fun and meaningful ways. I frequently post information about CAS and its diagnosis on my Facebook business page to inform parents
