Overall Treatment Approach:
   I initially determine the first three priority areas (e.g. mandibular control, lingual control, labial-facial control) from the motor-speech hierarchy, and the preferred planes of movement for treatment. Next, specific objectives are written to target a lexicon of functional syllables, words and phrases using a systematic approach.

Percent of CAS cases: 40

Parent Involvement:
   Parents either observe sessions or meet to discuss the session for the last five-ten minutes. Parents are provided with weekly home carryover assignments to target specific words/phrases (that are at mastery during therapy sessions) in functional home activities.

Community Involvement:
   I currently work at a private practice well known for the use of the PROMPT therapy approach.
