Overall Treatment Approach:
   Initial sessions are spent on stimulability and completing assessment for dynamic understanding of speech repertoire and production abilities; determine course of treatment, i.e. repetitive practice through Kaufman cards vs creating core word list to utilize with Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing approach. I strive to maintain ongoing assessment for ensuring best practice and best approach is being applied by challenging client with approach to best suit their skills, using a combination of approaches as seen fit.
