After the evaluation, therapy goals are created with the family. Suggested or typical goals include words/phrases that are important to the family. Additional goals include increasing the client's consonant and vowel repertoires using a variety of syllable shapes (CV, CVCV, CCVC, CCVCC, CV1CV2, etc.). Articulation targets are not generic and instead include words the client needs to produce at home or in school/daycare environments. AAC is considered if there is no functional communication. For toddlers or preschool age children, gestures paired with vocalizations are targeted and encouraged to facilitate functional communication. Phonological awareness goals are included to improve awareness of sounds in words and as a prerequisite to literacy skills. Auditory discrimination tasks are practiced, and multisensory cuing takes place throughout the course of treatment. Goals are constantly re-evaluated to determine if changes/modifications need to be made.
I direct parents to the Apraxia-Kids website and provide a link in my evaluations. I will begin walking in the 5K in my state. I have shared information on social media during Apraxia Awareness month. I would like to facilitate a support group for parents on my caseload.
Parents are allowed to sit in and participate in sessions. During teletherapy, parents may help with tactile cuing of feedback. In person, parents provide modeling and participate in play-based intervention. Parents are asked to provide a list of words/phrases most important to their child/family and those targets are included in sessions. Parents are encouraged to ask questions or make suggestions throughout the course of treatment.
I have created a picture exchange symbol ring for preferred toys and basic wants and needs.
