Overall Treatment Approach:
   I use the PROMPT approach, assessing where a child is as far as their motor speech skills and addressing goals using domains of strength (social, cognitive/linguistic etc.) to help their weaker domains (eg. subsystem control). I start each session with a mass practice of specific vocabulary words that the child's individual speech motor system can handle. Then we practice those words in an interactive language based activity or communication routine such as a game where words can be practiced in a functional way. Throughout the session, I evaluate the child's needs and determine how much or how little PROMPTing they need in order to shape successful syllables and words. I also consistently assess the child's jaw control, labial facial control, lingual control and sequenced movement ability to continually increase the complexity of the words and phrases the client is able to articulate.
