Overall Treatment Approach:
I use the Kaufman Speech Praxis Treatment approach in conjunction with Talk tools Sensory-motor Approach to Apraxia of Speech kit. I shape words approximations to target core vocabulary. This increases the child's motivation, decreases child- parent frustration and improves social and academic success. Once the child's oral movement coordination increases, lengthy and complex word formation and sentences appear. I also believe in total communication. I accept AAC, signing and verbal attempts in my session.
Percent of CAS cases: 30%
I coach parents by explaining goals, approaches and techniques. They observe, demonstrate and are given recorded and written material. We have an open door communication policy.
I co hosted with our company sponsor an Apraxia Walk with Apraxia Kids in Flowood, MS in 2017; I also volunteer for JSU Apraxia Walk for the ComD graduate school.
