Overall Treatment Approach:
   My approach is systematic. I develop a list of goals to address with target sounds and syllable shapes. I often build on these words with sequencing and smooth transitioning from one sound to another. I base my goals on my assessments and the child's responses to activities. Every target CV or CVC combination requires multiple attempts and drills.

Percent of CAS cases: 40

Parent Involvement:
   Parents are present during therapy sessions. They are given target words and activities to work on while at home. I provide them with activities and apps to use.
