My overall treatment approach is based on principles of motor learning. I combine a variety of approaches including the following: PROMPT, Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol, and Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing with multi-sensory cueing. I set goals and choose targets with the child and family to ensure goals are functional and meaningful. And most importantly, I aim to make therapy as engaging and fun as possible along every step of the way
In addition to working with multiple families impacted by Apraxia, I regularly share resources by Apraxia Kids and other members of the Apraxia community on my social media outlets. I look forward to increasing my involvement in the Apraxia community in the near future!
Caregiver involvement is very important to me as we know it is crucial for obtaining best outcomes in intervention. Families play a large role in setting goals, implementing home practice to help the generalization/carryover of new skills, and they are encouraged to be an active participant in therapy as much as possible!
I have used low tech (communication boards/sheets) with children to help them either with basic requesting/commenting or for clarification in cases of communication breakdown. I have also worked with Proloquo to go and LAMP (I have actually signed up for another LAMP training course next month). I introduced these additional methods of communication to help children develop communicative competence and to promote successful social interactions. Sometimes, I also found that they were more motivated to imitate the models provided by their devices versus the verbal model provided by their communication partner because it was self-initiated and they felt in control.
