- Teletherapy in Michigan
- Withee Speech Therapy, LLC
I use evidence-based approaches such as Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cuing (DTTC) and Speech Motor Chaining, which incorporate the Principles of Motor Learning. I am also trained in PROMPT and The Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol. I utilize sign language as well as additional visual and tactile cues in all therapy sessions. Goals focus on both the development of speech and language skills. Therapy sessions target specific goals and consist of both structured and play based activities which are tailored to meet each individual child’s needs and interests. I want your child to enjoy our time together!
I participated in the Apraxia Kids Intensive Training institute (Boot Camp) and am "Recognized by Apraxia Kids for Advanced Training and Expertise in Childhood Apraxia of Speech." I attended the Apraxia Kids National Conference in 2016, 2017, 2019, and 2021 and numerous other workshops, presented by experts in CAS such as David Hammer and Edythe Strand. I earned ASHA’s (American Speech and Hearing Association) ACE award in both 2018 and 2021 for completion of 7.0 (equivalent to 70 hours) ASHA Continuing Education Units (CEUs) within a 36-month period with most of those hours in courses related to CAS and other speech sound disorders. I have participated in the Central Ohio Walk for Apraxia for the past several years.
Treatment goals are developed following thorough assessment and with parent input. Progress is discussed and reviewed following each session. Therapy techniques and rationale are explained, and home practice ideas/activities provided. Parents are encouraged to ask questions, discuss concerns, and give ideas for specific targets that are relevant to the child's current interests and activities.
The use of Augmentative and Alternative Communication can be a powerful tool to support communication in children with CAS who are working on developing their speech and language skills. I have experience with both low-tech (e.g., communication books) and high-tech (e.g., voice output devices) AAC.
