Our practice specializes in intensive therapy blocks to provide children with the necessary repetition required for successful treatment for CAS. Specifically, Block Therapy is provided 4-5 days per week for 6 weeks. Goals for each Block of treatment are specific for the child’s needs and incorporate research-based therapy methods, including integral stimulation, motor-learning principles, and the cycles approach to promote the child’s progress. I am trained in PROMPT and use tactile cues, as well as visual cues and gesture cues to elicit target sounds, syllable structures, and words throughout therapy sessions. Each therapy session consists of numerous repetitions of target words or phrases. Once the child can successfully produce a target, randomized practice is very quickly introduced to improve motor learning and transfer of skills. Children may participate in up to three 6-week therapy Blocks per year, as needed. Home practice and parental involvement in therapy is strongly encouraged to promote carry-over of skills.
Our practice specializes in treating children with co-occurring apraxia and autism. We work closely with other therapists in the area in order to provide the best therapy for our clients.
During therapy, parents are encouraged to observe and participate in every session if they are able. This way parents learn about their child's productions along with the child and are able to learn about successful cues, etc. Home practice activities are provided each day for the parents and children to practice together. Parents are encouraged to ask questions throughout the therapy to facilitate their increased knowledge. My most successful cases have had the most involved parents, and parents are my greatest asset in this process!
I have used both low and high tech AAC with children who have CAS as a way to communicate and to support speech and language development.
