I recommend frequent and intensive speech intervention once CAS is suspected and then diagnosed. I typically recommend frequency between 3-5x/week with recommended home practice as well. Treatment focuses on speech movement patterns not speech sounds. I provide multisensory cues to assist with production, including tactile-kinesthetic prompts (PROMPT), auditory/verbal cues, visual cues, models, etc. I include principles of motor learning theory into my treatment sessions and home programs, including blocked practice, random practice, etc. I provide specific feedback to children including knowledge of their performance.
I have worked with children and their families impacted by CAS for over 20 years. I attend many conferences on the topic of CAS as I have a special interest in this population. In addition to my work experience, I also have a 14 year old son with autism spectrum disorder and CAS. I support my patients, their families and the local community by participating in various walks for CAS through Apraxia Kids and making donations.
I involve parents in every step of the evaluation and treatment process. Many parents sit in on my evaluation and treatment sessions. For those that do not, I always include them at the end of my sessions for review of what was targeted, the progress that was made and recommendations for continued home practice. I make myself available to provide outside resources and am always available for questions if they arise outside of the therapy room.
