Overall Treatment Approach:
Communication is the focus - so my first step is to ensure that the child has a meaningful and functional way to communicate core ideas (this may be an AAC system, gestures, or SGD). Understanding the need for high rates of practice, I would set up activities that would allow repeated use of specific syllable patterns that are targeted to the individual child. My focus would be on the motor planning aspect of sound production within a motivating activity.
Percent of CAS cases: 20
Parents are in each session. Discussion of therapy targets is completed each session. As part of the session the parent will run a simple exercise as a way to learn to support the child's communication.
I've been on the Apraxia of speech website many times and have supported families with children with this diagnosis.
