Typically I develop a protocol based on the SAO results and chart on the motor speech hierarchy. Depending on the child's needs I would begin with the stage determined as start point and work up 2 levels with mapping. Additionally, I provide parents and other interested therapists with the sound/word targets for the week/time period so that ongoing practice is encouraged. I have used apraxia apps as well as word lists and practice activities to encourage maximum practice with families/caregivers.
I am a therapist. I participate in ongoing training, reading information as well as being part of several groups on social media for sharing ideas and suggestions. Most of my client with CAS are co-morbid with autism...so I am also involved with ongoing training, increasing awareness and sharing current information on autism.
I also participate in any fundraisers as well as share information on CAS on social media as appropriate.
They are encouraged to sit in on sessions so they can see what I am doing as well as offer their thoughts on communication needs that are important to their family....if possible I will include those goals/needs in some way so the family is validated. Families are given lists of practice words as well as suggested activities to help give maximum number of practice opportunities in a natural setting. I have also (when asked) given parents lists of videos on Gemiini that reinforce the goals we are emphasizing.
I have used basic signs to help with communication frustration. I have used basic picture boards...often developed by the parent with pictures of objects/items of importance to them. I have also used the ipad/proloquo and other more basic apps to give children a means to communicate.
