I used multi-sensory play based approach to treatment. I suggest either having multiple sessions a week or if multiple sessions aren't possible, I set up a home program and school program so the child can practice every day. I use components of different therapy strategies ( Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing, PROMPT, Tactile Cues, mass practice, sound and syllable shape inventories, etc. ) depending on the child and how they are presenting in therapy. I will informally reevaluate new sound and syllable shapes that the child may show emerging skills in and work to build complexity in their sound sequencing. Also, I will work on prosody as the child builds complexity into their speech.
Present and consult with school districts, volunteered at the Apraxia walk, active participant in the Facebook page for families with children with Apraxia, Provide AAC consultation
Parent involvement is very important. I typically have parents complete fun activities or play games with words shapes that the child is almost or mastered so they can continue to build generalization of the work during the therapy session. I encourage parents to be an active participant in the sessions or at least watch to they know exactly what is going on in the sessions.
I use both AAC and CAS strategies in all my sessions. I believe that while a child is working on improving their verbal speech production that we want to give children a way to communicate and be an active member in the community by being able to state needs and wants, comments, health and safety needs, etc. I will evaluate if a low tech language board is enough to help the child with augmenting their speech or if we should use a high tech speech generating device to allow the child to produce novel phrases and sentences.
