Percent of CAS cases: 25

Parent Involvement:
   Parents are involved from the very beginning. I often work within the home, therefore, I will get blocks of practice with the child in order to model a skill and then I will hand it over to the parents to have them try it themselves. We will then brainstorm ways that they can get the repetitions throughout their day. I will often try those routines with the parents to help them understand the correct prompting with target words. I will leave homework with the parents to try throughout the week. I will encourage parents to video tape parts of our sessions so that they can reflect on some of the techniques throughout the week.

Community Involvement:
   Over the past several years, I have been involved in training on CAS and being a consult for other Early Intervention Therapists in my community. I have held several presentations to providers about the identification, diagnosis and treatment for kids that may have suspected motor planning issues. I am often called in for challenging clients when therapists are unsure of treatment. I provide guidance to those therapists with on ongoing dialogue of next steps. I continue to educate myself with reading.
