From my experience, I have learned that no two children present identically, but that all children require a genuine relationship with their clinician. After evaluation, my initial targets are to get to know the child and family and establish a fun and trusting environment. I love to be the giver of all good things in therapy. There's nothing better than seeing a kid who is excited about coming to speech and enters the room with a smile! During this time, I provide information regarding the principles of motor planning and how the parents can help their child become an effective communicator. Having had a child with CAS, I've been the parent in the therapy room and the clinician. It can be a tough path, but there's always a silver-lining. I have completed education in DTTC, PROMPT, and ReST. I also love all things neuroscience and have completed many hours of training in executive capacities. I use a variety of these techniques during treatment in a play-based setting.
My daughter has CAS which initially sparked my desire to learn everything I could about childhood apraxia. At the time, I was a SAHM, and once she was able to effectively communicate, I felt compelled to help other families who felt the same kind of desperate need to help their child, and reentered the work world. I've attended national conferences and attended the Apraxia Kids workshop for educators. I regularly follow the research and have diagnosed and treated many children with CAS.
Parents are encouraged to be in sessions as their involvement is crucial to their child's progress. Parent's are encouraged to ask as many questions and empowered to learn how to help their kiddos. Relationships are so important in this process, both with the family and with the child.
I've only used AAC for my autistic kiddos. I haven't yet had a child with CAS who has needed an AAC.
