Business Hours: Bright Start Therapies, Inc hours of operation Monday-Friday 8-6 pm
Treatment Locations: Office/Clinic
Insurance Accepted: Yes
Percent of CAS cases: 20
Overall Treatment Approach:
Therapy recommended 2-3x per week usually. Start with sounds and word shapes they already have. Pick out a set of target words or word approximations for 2-3 different play activities and work to get at least 60-100 productions of those targets during the session. Use PROMPT and other cues to facilitate oral placements.
I'm not sure how to answer this question.
Parents are involved in either each session or every other session to learn how to choose targets during play activities as well as how to scaffold easier targets (break it down by movements) or fade supports.
AAC Use/Implementation Expertise:
I have used both static visuals as well as dynamic display SGD for children with CAS. AAC has been helpful for reducing frustration, giving a child a way to cue themselves, as well as support language and literacy development beyond their verbal production skills.
