My treatment approach starts with determining what the child is able to do and to build their functional language skills from there. I prioritize the family's input in choosing target words so that the words are meaningful and motivating. Early success for the child is important, so that they gain confidence to attempt newer and harder words in the future. When needed, AAC is incorporated into sessions as well. I use the principles of motor learning and integral stimulation-based treatment to guide my therapy. Highly preferred play routines are used with the goal of getting high numbers of trials for our target words.
I've worked in early intervention and in different pediatric clinics since 2011, and I currently work at a pediatric clinic that specializes in the treatment of children with childhood apraxia of speech.
All of the parents sit in for the whole sessions. We pick out target words together that are highly motivating and important for their child. I model for the parents multimodal cues to get the best imitation from the child, and how to fade cues to help with generalization.
I have used gestural systems and aided systems, both low tech and high tech, within sessions to address expressive language goals. After addressing vocal speech with high repetitions of trials for our target words, a portion of the sessions are then dedicated to the use of AAC to comment, request, protest, ask/answer questions, etc.
