Overall Treatment Approach:
   My treatment approach is highly individualized based upon how each client learns best, what motivates the child and which sounds are in his/her repertoire as well as what target sounds (CV and VC…not sounds in isolation) are stimulable.I use an eclectic, multi-sensory approach that incorporates a number of methods including Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC), PROMPT, hand cues, and more. It is imperative that I utilize movement and rhythm so the child can feel syllabification as well as his/her own body. I also elongate my vowels while also providing various inflections for the same word, phrase, etc. I encourage the use of bilateral hand movement, too, and stress to parents that the use of their child’s hands is critical (I frequently co-treatment with OTs and have learned so much from them).Each child needs to practice sound patterns in a drill fashion (that continues to be meaningful and motivating) as well as practicing sounds in a more generalized way in play using lots of repetition.

Parent Involvement:
   Parents are in the sessions with me when it is therapeutic for their child so they can learn some of the strategies that they can use in a less structured, playful environment at home and in the community.
