Overall Treatment Approach:
   The first session or two, I build a relationship with the child. I believe the child needs to trust me in order to attempt many imitations per session. During the first session, I frequently have them imitate the sounds/words at the level where they are currently to build their confidence in my therapy room. I strongly believe the relationship between the SLP and the child can alter the child’s success or lack thereof. My personal treatment approach is a combination of several apraxia treatment programs. I use parts of DTTC, PROMPT, and Kaufman to reach the child. Obviously each child’s treatment differs according to what they need and what they respond to best. I use cues, cues, cues...visual, tactile, gestural- whatever it takes for the child to be successful in his production of the target sound.

Percent of CAS cases: 17%

Parent Involvement:
   Homework is sent to the parents of the kids that I see in a preschool. I also send articles or handouts regarding apraxia to them. My personal cell number is provided for them to reach me to ask questions. The parents of the kids that I see at my private office are also provided with at-home exercises and apraxia information. These parents are welcome to join each therapy session. Most of the parents at my private practice do attend each session. During therapy, I explain why we are doing each activity and how they can carryover these activities at home.

Community Involvement:
   Recently, I became very passionate about CAS and think it is very interesting. I feel the work I do with kids with apraxia is life changing. I am currently in the process of thinking about the support this group could offer to new parents, established parents, and the kids.
