I build on skills that are present. I work within the zone of proximal development to increase skills in the order that is most natural for the child. I base my treatment on the principles of motor learning moving from mass practice to practice with shorter duration, more frequently; from consistent feedback to random feedback and from consistent models and targets to varied models and targets.
My therapy is fun and affect based. Kids are playing while working on sounds, no matter where they are in treatment. My ultimate goal is carryover, so I consistently communicate practice strategies and "things to think about this week" with families.
I have seen many kids over the years who have true and also misdiagnosed diagnoses of CAS. I consider myself an advocate for kids and families in both of those circumstances, to their other therapists, schools, extended families etc.
Parents are included in therapy sessions as often as is appropriate, each child is different. Consistently provide home programs.
I have experience gaining funding for AAC and providing AAC therapy.
