Children with CAS on my caseload engage in fun, interactive, highly motivating sessions geared towards the child's interests and needs. Children with CAS require consistent and frequent therapy in order to help improve and shape their motor speech abilities efficiently. My therapy approach for each CAS child is tailored to meet their needs best using evidenced based approaches (DTTC/ReST), multisensory cuing, and highly engaging activities. I encourage parents/families to be active in therapy sessions so that carry-over and generalization can be achieved faster for children.
I have worked with a large number of CAS families within the last 4 years. I recently moved from Fayetteville, AR to Grand Junction, CO to help provide treatment for families previously referred to the front range.
Parents are a key factor in both the diagnosis and treatment of CAS. Families are educated on what CAS is and what approach I will use with their child prior to treatment session in addition to answering questions/concerns they have throughout the therapy journey. Parents are key with helping to carryover practice at home for words the child has mastered in order to help with generalization.
AAC and/or early signs are always encouraged and implemented early on in therapy to help limit a child's frustration while they are acquiring speech and refining their oral motor skills. Research and experience have shown using pictures, communication apps (Proloquo2go), and/or signs have shown to help children communicate their wants/needs with others while continuing to build their speech and language skills without hindering their ability to acquire spoken speech.
