My overall treatment approach includes the use of functional word targets, starting where a child is successful and building from there by making single changes to the system at a time, the use of Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC), and additional motor learning principles. I also believe it is important to set the child up with meaningful and successful modalities to communicate as soon as possible. This may include augmentative and alternative forms of communication to reduce frustrations communicating with all communication partners.
I have treated children with a diagnosis or "suspected" diagnosis (sCAS) of CAS over the past two years in my clinic as this is a population which is highly referred to our clinic due to its reputation for treating the disorder.
Parents are involved throughout the therapy process. Initially parents provide the clinician with several functional word targets. Once a child has mastered a set of word targets in the therapy environment, it is expected the child will practice these techniques at home to provide the most high intensity services possible.
While AAC use is typically used at the beginning stages of treatment for a child with sCAS or CAS, the form of AAC used depends on a variety of factors, including the child's cognitive development skills, fine motor capabilities, and what the family is comfortable using.
