Looking at the whole child in assessment, I take into account their functional needs, their tolerance, their personality, etc., and combine that with a look at their sound inventory, syllable and word structure, oral motor movement skills and language skills. In therapy, I integrate different therapy techniques: hand signs or other AAC to help build a young child’s communication success and confidence. I also can provide PROMPT cues, hand cueing by me for sound placement, TalkTools OPT (Oral Placement Therapy) if needed for oral sensory and tactile feedback, lots of visual cues, lots of movement practice for motor learning and hopefully, enough fun to keep the child engaged and motivated.
I just moved to the Fort White, FL area and opened my practice in the nearby small town of High Springs. I love the community here and look forward to working with children and families here in the north central Florida area.
Education is key. I explain the rationale for the what we are doing in therapy and the outcomes we are looking for. I encourage parents to be in the session when possible. When not possible, due to siblings or distraction, I will bring the parent in when a child is having consistent success with a speech task and home practice can begin. I also provide suggestions for working on language skills, and when needed, oral motor skills. I greatly enjoy working with parents as a team and welcome questions and feedback.
I strongly value the use of total communication, using hand signs, pictures(low tech AAC) as well as high tech AAC with iPad app and dedicated devices when needed. While speech is improving, total communication helps a child with CAS communicate their wants, needs and ideas.
