I use Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC) incorporating my training in the principles of motor learning, PROMPT, The Kaufman Approach, and sign language as well as additional visual and tactile cues. Goals focus on both speech and language skills. Therapy sessions target on specific goals during structured activities that are planned so that practice continues to occur even during play in order to obtain a high number of practice trials.
I have attended the Apraxia Kids National Conference in 2016, 2017 and 2019. In addition I have attended numerous other workshops, presented by experts in CAS such as David Hammer and Edythe Strand, and was recently accepted into the 2020 Apraxia Kids Intensive Training Institute. I have participated in the Central Ohio Walk for Apraxia for the past several years.
Treatment goals are collaborated on with parents and progress is discussed and reviewed on a weekly basis. Parents are able to observe all sessions through a two way mirror or remain in the therapy room as needed. Therapy techniques and rationale are explained and home practice ideas/activities provided. Parents are encouraged to ask questions, discuss concerns and give ideas of specific words that are relevant to the child's current interests and activities to target during sessions.
I have used PECS and additional low-tech informal picture communication methods to help clients develop basic communication skills when they are at non-verbal or highly unintelligible stages and encouraged parents use or set up these systems at home. I also have a fairly good sign language vocabulary and frequently use signs and gestures to facilitate language development and help increase length and complexity of productions.
