My overall approach would include incorporating multi-sensory cueing, intensive practice of correct production of target words, lots of feedback, and constant assessment of progress. I start with a good thorough assessment and pick target phonemes and words to start with. I try to provide the client with multiple opportunities to produce the target sound successfully by providing cues and feedback. Starting with VC or CV combinations is usually helpful to get successful productions.
I have attended the Apraxia Kids National Conference. I would like to be more involved in the community. There is an apraxia support group in the area, but I have not yet attended.
I let the parents sit in on therapy initially, so that they can see what is necessary to get the target produced correctly. I send homework of the target words and produce flashcards to be used in drill. I will loan my Kaufman cards or other resources to educate the parents and family on how to best help the child. I have taken a parent with me to the National Apraxia Conference. I encourage my parents to read and educate themselves on Apraxia.
I have several of my apraxic and autistic clients on AAC speech generated devices while we work on target phonemes and words to try to add a few words to there verbal speech inventory.
For my apraxic clients without autism, I have used basic sign language, picture boards, and speech generated devices to augment speech production.
