Treatment for CAS involved individualized target selection based on the child's current sound repertoire and syllable shapes as well as stimulable sounds and/or shapes. I utilize multi modal cues, including visual, verbal, tactile-kinesthetic cues and fade these cues as the child progresses in therapy. During practice trials, children are provided with frequent breaks and rewards that are quick and efficient to promote increased practice trials and maintain participation in speech tasks. Direct feedback will be provided after productions to increase awareness of accuracy in targeted productions. Utilization of a combination of motor-speech work and play based approaches promotes generalization of learned skills across all environments (home, school).
I am actively involved in the Apraxia community by following Apraxia Kids online and am up to date with training opportunities. Additionally, I am up to date with new and current research in the diagnosis and treatment of CAS. I am an inspiring Apraxia boot camp applicant and working toward training team members in clinically appropriate evaluation and treatment practices for CAS.
Parents are strongly encouraged to learn how they can help their child at home to generalize learned skills in speech therapy. Parents are requested to observe directly at least 50 percent of the time and parent collaboration and education are provided throughout therapy session and conclusion of therapy sessions.
I have utilized AAC devices (high tech and low tech) for children with CAS to facilitate a functional means of communication greater than 1-2 word utterances. The high tech devicies (e.g., TouchChat, Tobii Dynavox) provided an additional verbal prompt for the individual as well as a visual representation of desired basic wants and needs. A low tech communication board was provided in conjunction with utilization of verbal speech therapy for treatment of CAS to promote a functional means of communication with unfamiliar listeners to reduce communication breakdown.
