Overall Treatment Approach:
   My treatment approach is based on the principles of motor learning and individualized to meet each child's needs. I utilize PROMPTS for restructuring oral muscular phonetic targets (PROMPT), Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC), Rapid Syllable Transition Treatment (ReST), and the Kaufman Method. I strive to make therapy fun and productive. In addition to motor speech, my approach also focuses on functional communication and language development
