Therapy session will be individualized based on child's age, goals, and severity. I do use a child centered approach. When starting with a new patient the focus of the first few session will be making that child comfortable talking to me and establishing rapport with the child and family. I will start each session by talking to family to see if there has been any progress since their last visit and how they are doing implementing therapy strategies at home. I will use a variety of treatment approaches, based on what each patient needs. Therapy targets are specifically chosen based on function and the clients current mastery of sounds and syllable shapes. I utilize a variety of cues (ie., verbal or visual) that I will fade when appropriate while focusing on a high number of repetitions for each syllable shape/word to promote motor planning/programming.
I would like to become more involved in the Apraxia community. I have recently had an increased interest and desire to further my knowledge for detection and treatment of CAS.
I ask that parents come back for the initial evaluation and at least a few therapy sessions after that so they are able to see what a therapy session looks like. Then I will let the parents determine if they would like to be in the room during therapy. If they choose to wait in the waiting room (some children are more attentive to SLP if parents are not present) then we touch base with them at the end of each therapy session. Providing education, strategies, and activities to use at home to target goals.
