Overall Treatment Approach:
   I work in private practice (sole proprietor) which gives me a unique opportunity to have parent/caregivers present during my sessions. The primary goal is to engage the child in Motor based learning, starting with helping the child and family understand what we will be working on (improving awareness and intent). I implement the Principles of Motor Learning depending on the severity of the speech disorder. I set conditions of practice and schedules and provide feedback accordingly (internal as well as providing knowledge of results/performance). I focus on movement as opposed to just phoneme production.

Percent of CAS cases: 75

Parent Involvement:
   Parents are present during the evaluation and therapy sessions. Techniques are directly demonstrated to parents/caregivers along with providing occasional audio/video models.

Community Involvement:
   From 2000-2010, when I lived in Thousand Oaks, CA I provided several parent education topics to local preschools and the parent community. In recent years, I have provided parent education and education for the families I serve in the community.
