I incorporate motor learning principles into treatment. I focus on a high number of targets within short and frequent sessions. I use DTTC and PROMPT in my therapy. I include goals and strategies to support prosody.
I serve as a volunteer for Speech and Audiology Canada. In my role as a volunteer, I am responsible for selecting speakers for conferences. I actively review the research and select speakers in the area of CAS. I am working with a parent of a child with CAS to organize a walk for apraxia in Calgary, Canada. I am the assistant walk coordinator. I am also assisting a parent with fundraising for Apraxia Kids by selling t shirts designed to raise awareness of apraxia with all of the funds going to Apraxia Kids.
Parents attend sessions and are provided with homework (targets that are easily and corrected produced by children on my caseload). They are involved in the planning and selection of functional target words and phrases.
I use AAC with children to support functional communication with many of the children that I work with. For children who have more severe CAS, we will practice a few goals within our sessions. Most of the children on my caseload are using some form of AAC. I have used low tech (laminated pictures, laminated board, etc.) and high tech (picture word power, Nova chat, Touch chat, Prologue 2 go, etc.). AAC is incorporated into our sessions when we are targeting functional communication - using language to request, protest, greet others etc. I provide demonstrations for parents and support the use of AAC at home, school and in the community. I also have two clients who are using a keyboard to type messages. These clients are encouraged to say the sounds or words as they type their message. Most of the school aged clients I see in private practice, also see a school based SLP. The school based SLP often will focus on AAC and I will focus on motor speech skills.
