- Jennifer Haigh Speech Therapy, LLC
My treatment approach is individualized and specific for every child. It is based on a comprehensive assessment, as well as collaboration with family and other service providers. I also take into account the child’s phonetic repertoire and using these sounds in motor planning tasks to increase intelligible speech and using a hierarchy of cueing to facilitate speech motor planning. I work with the family providing education about CAS as well as providing the family with practice suggestions that they can work on at home. One of my focuses in treatment is to increase intelligible speech in a way that the child is having fun and learning at the same time!
I have completed continuing education courses in the area of Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) including an advanced CAS training in Dynamic and Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC) and I am DTTC-trained.
I would like to become a more active member in the Apraxia community. I have attended conferences and trainings to learn more about Childhood Apraxia of Speech such as the Apraxia Kids National Conference, on-line trainings such as courses offered on Apraxia Kids and Edythe’s Strands’ DTTC on-line training, and attended a CAS advanced two-day training in DTTC.My goal is to become more knowledgeable in CAS so I can be a provider and advocate for children with CAS in my area.
Parents play a very important role in the child’s development and treatment. I encourage families to be part of the evaluation and treatment process. I also educate parents about CAS and the treatment techniques that I use as well as provide exercises that the child can practice at home. It is important to have continuous dialogue with families and to be advocates for families and their children.
I have experience with using various AAC options for children with a variety of speech-language disorders, including CAS. For children with CAS, the primary goal is to become functional verbal communicators and AAC can be used if there is a breakdown in verbal communication. If a child benefits from an AAC device, then I work on both speech production and device usage in treatment. I also work with the family and the child on how to obtain and use an AAC device.
