Overall Treatment Approach:
Get the mouth moving! Integral stimulation combined with verbal and tactile cues, use of oral tactile stimulation techniques, jaw stability and tongue/jaw separation activities, jaw grading for vowel differentiation, airflow for voicing, encouraging voluntary variations of voicing: length, pitch, loudness, stimulate movements for specific sounds: lip movements, plosion, Practicing syllable shapes - accurate vowels, VC or CV syllables, CVC, VCV, polysyllables, blends as child progresses. Home program/practice required. Parents observe and participate.
Percent of CAS cases: 8
Parents observe and/or participate in sessions depending on age of child. Under 3.5, parents typically act as models and temptations for activities. Therapy activities and/or exercises are demonstrated and parents perform exercises to be done at home. Daily practice is provided for home practice. I encourage parents to make a "Brag Book" of current vocabulary to include photos of family and home objects. May encourage the use of PECS to decrease frustration at home.
Currently, continuing education through ASHA, CSHA, Speech Pathology.com and my local SELPA.
