Because I work mostly with younger children, therapy sessions are usually play-based. When treating CAS, I like to choose 1-3 target words that are most functional for the child and their family to incorporate into our play. This allows for maximum repetitions with minimal variances. Once those functional words are established, we move to other functional words, usually words with similar sounds to target manipulating the sounds to change the words. Although I am not PROMPT trained, I use my own system of hand cues for visual input, along with tactile cues for placement.
My involvement with Apraxia has been limited to my patients. Unfortunately, I am not aware of much community support for Apraxia in my area.
My clinic practices "family centered therapy". Parents are present for sessions as appropriate, or at the very least for a comprehensive review at the end of each session. I review our target words, success and difficulties, prompting needed to be successful with models, and assign practice words and frequencies before the next session.
Low tech AAC, such as visual schedules and pictures choices, are incorporated into all of my sessions and not limited to CAS treatment. I have limited experience with high-tech AAC.
