We target functional language and vocabulary of increasing complexity while using multisensory cueing strategies to facilitate the complex movements necessary for understandable speech. We value and understand the importance of frequent therapy sessions with a trained professional and home practice to foster age appropriate vowel and consonant sequences.
We participate in our local Apraxia Walk and provide excellent diagnostic and treatment to those with motor planning challenges in our community. We also contribute to a local broadcast station weekly with various developmental topics including Childhood Apraxia of Speech.
Parents are crucial participants on the child's team at our clinic. They attend the evaluation, transport the child to sessions, attend sessions and observe through one way windows to learn strategies and observe progress, they contribute to team meetings regarding the plan of care, they help prioritize goals, etc. They are involved in every step of our therapy process.
When a child's speech is difficult to understand, they need another communication mode to get their wants and needs met. We immediately embark on identifying the best AAC option for them, whether it is a simple picture exchange communication system or a high tech device that we partner with another company to identify a best fit. We then incorporate the AAC system into our sessions while working to facilitate the verbal speech. We also counsel the parents on AAC systems to achieve their buy-in and provide them with the evidence that communicating in a different mode only facilitates verbal speech, as some parents are hesitant to utilize AAC. Coaching also comes into play so communication partners are ready and able to interact with the child via their AAC system.
