Hi, My name is Chelsea Knowles, and I am a pediatric SLP with 23 years of all pediatric experience. I started my career working with children with CAS and am still in touch with my first client with CAS who went from a very shy non-verbal toddler to becoming a very verbal young adult who is comfortable in her own skin and successfully attending college. They have become like family to me.
I work closely as a team with parents and caregivers, take a detailed history of the child’s speech and language development, positively engage and establish rapport with your child, thoroughly evaluate and get to know your child, and design and provide fun and functional evidence based therapy catered to your child’s interests, motivations, and therapeutic needs.
We provide your child with an alternate way to communicate while they are learning verbal language. Yet, at the same time, we teach your child to imitate, encourage your child to vocalize, and develop their speech and language in a systematic but fun way. Along the way, you will observe, interact, and be coached in a home exercise program so that you feel comfortable continuing to encourage their communication at home in your daily routine.
If you have any questions or would like to schedule an evaluation or therapy for your child, please reach out!
As an SLP with my own private practice, I share with parents and post on social media about Apraxia Kids as a resource for parents of children with apraxia of speech and to increase awareness of the disorder. I have not yet done the Apraxia Walk, but I would like to in the future.
Parents are an integral part of the diagnostic and therapy process. I communicate with them along the way about what I am seeing and what I suspect. I listen to their concerns and ask them questions about the child's history of speech and language development, and observe how the child interacts with the parent. I train the parent in how to interact and communicate with their child to facilitate communication. I educate them in what to expect in terms of progress and on what they can do at home to facilitate generalization of learned skills. I have the parent observe the therapy if possible and if appropriate with the child's behavior. While the SLP is the expert in their field, the parent is the expert on their child and is an invaluable resource to me. We learn from each other.
I have a student in the schools with suspected apraxia of speech who uses an Ipad with Proloquo 2 Go software. I train her in the use of the device to assist when others do not understand her and train the teacher in the use of the device. In the past, I have used sign language as a bridge to oral language for children with apraxia of speech.
