Overall Treatment Approach:
   When working with children with CAS, I often pick a combination of phonemes, tasks, and syllable combinations; some that I anticipate the child will be successful with (to encourage motivation and engaged participation) and others that will be more difficult (identified areas of weakness for the child). I often find it helps to practice target phonemes and/or words multiple times throughout the session but with a variety of materials to keep them engaged and motivated (e.g., practicing the word "pop" with bubbles, a balloon, poppers that pop up, etc.).

Percent of CAS cases: 5

Parent Involvement:
   I encourage parents to observe sessions to learn techniques and strategies that I use within the session. Additionally, I give parents "target words" to practice prior to their next session and give them ideas of activities to utilize while practicing those target words.

Community Involvement:
   I have attended 2 PROMPT courses to enable me to work more effectively with children who struggle with CAS.
