Using a multi-modality approach and varied treatment strategies, our therapy is tailored to the individual child's needs and interests. It is always one-on-one and designed to treat other speech or language problems that may occur with Apraxia. Treatment typically includes speech sound imitation skills, developing speech/oral-motor movement patterns and sequences, increasing length and complexity of syllable patterns, and teaching appropriate prosody for longer utterances. Augmentative communication systems are implemented when needed. Treatment may also address word finding and language organization issues.
I have sponsored some of my patients with CAS in Apraxia Kids Apraxia Walks. I have also helped a few of my patients gain access to iPads through Apraxia Kids iPads for Apraxia Programs.
Parents are allowed and encouraged to observe the therapy session if they so choose. Each therapy visit is reviewed with the parent or caregiver and a short homework assignment is assigned for daily practice. Assignments could be a new syllable sequence, movement gesture or a few new words to be reinforced at home for a few minutes each day.
I have used a variety of AAC methods/devices with my patients with Childhood Apraxia of Speech. Whether its teaching simple signs, using PECS, or iPads equipped with AAC software, we use AAC as a means to help the child communicate, access their education, and develop their expressive language skills as we work on their articulation and speech production skills.
