DTTC for young/severe children. Combination of approaches (ReST, multisensory) for older and more verbal children. Inclusion of sound-pattern-related goals for older/more verbal children who have phonological pattern errors. For children of any age, emphasis on functional vocabulary to efficiently increase ability to communicate with others. Careful consideration of principles of motor learning adjusted to as needed based on child's progress.
I became involved in Apraxia Kids via the first internet listserv and have been involved with ever since. I have facilitated a local support group in the past. Currently, I am a member of several Apraxia Kids-related Facebook groups, and comment occasionally. I have been involved in presenting webinars, workshops, and other types of training for fellow SLPs, and that is ongoing, including presentations/training in Australia, Canada, and Austria in addition to the U.S..
I have always encouraged active involvement of parents and other caregiver, and will continue to advocate this.
Every child who can use gestures to augment their communication is encouraged to do so. Signs are introduced immediately if the child and parents are willing and able to use them.
I make limited use of pictures, as it can be challenging for parents to have the correct pictures on hand, but do incorporate pictures as activity schedules in therapy, or as limited augmentation for expression (e.g., photo album booklet with most frequently used vocabulary) at times.
High tech introduced as needed, depending on multiple factors. I tend to not rush to high tech with children who appear to have good potential to be verbal within a reasonable period of time.
