I use varied approaches to treatment depending on the patient. Kaufman protocol, Cycles Approach, Integrated phonological awareness intervention (IPA). Treatment approaches vary slightly between child, due to differences in abilities and participation. Increased therapy frequency and intensity. Home resources and activities for family to complete daily to increase skills, generalization, etc.
Participate in the Apraxia Kids Oklahoma Walk for Apraxia. Continuing education courses.
Observe in all therapy activities. Instruction to parents on how to give multi sensory cues when practicing at home. "homework" sent home for daily practice.
The use of AAC helps decrease frustration and behaviors in children due to the inability to effectively communicate their wants and needs. I recommend low tech (ASL, PECs,) for the primary AAC trials for children with CAS. Since ASL does not require additional materials, it is usually my first recommendation. However, if the child is unable to effectively use ASL (due to physical limitations, limb apraxia, etc) other means of AAC is used. I have had successful use of high tech AAC with children with CAS. I recommend high tech AAC when progress is slow and communication intent is high. A great pro to high tech is the auditory feedback of the device when using.
