I work on lists of single words of various syllable shapes (CV, VC, CVC, CVCV, etc.) that are common nouns, verbs, and favorite items of the child. I often utilize the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol providing multi-sensory cues, fading cues, block to random practice and mass to distributive practice. Working with children with CAS, it is often helpful to simplify words to a syllable shape or age appropriate phonological process they can produce more easily. By helping them simplify words, they are able to label and request more often using a vocalization. In my practice, I utilize strategic reinforcement and errorless teaching to allow more successful trials. I work with parents and Board Certified Behavior Analysists to provide my clients with multiple opportunities to produce vocalizations throughout their day, and generalize skills to different environments.
Working at the Kaufman Children’s Center, I work closely with families who experience childhood apraxia of speech every day.
I aid in coaching parents to work with their children through play and how to carry over what their child learns within speech sessions to home and different environments. Parents are encouraged to watch therapy sessions through a one-way observation mirror and are updated on goals, progress, and techniques used after each session, if possible.
I have taught manual signs and the use of Go Talk Now on a tablet to my non-verbal clients, which have both aided as a bridge to vocal communication, and increased overall communication.
