When working with children with CAS, I often pick a combination of phonemes, tasks, and syllable combinations; some that I anticipate the child will be successful with (to encourage motivation and engaged participation) and others that will be more difficult (identified areas of weakness for the child). I often find it helps to practice target phonemes and/or words multiple times throughout the session but with a variety of materials to keep them engaged and motivated (e.g., practicing the word "pop" with bubbles, a balloon, poppers that pop up, etc.).
I have attended 2 PROMPT courses to enable me to work more effectively with children who struggle with CAS.
I encourage parents to observe sessions to learn techniques and strategies that I use within the session. Additionally, I give parents "target words" to practice prior to their next session and give them ideas of activities to utilize while practicing those target words.
Primarily, I have used high-tech AAC with children with CAS. I have used AAC as another modality for children with CAS to effectively communicate their wants and needs with a variety of communication partners across various settings. Always, when applicable I try to target single words with PROMPT cueing, then encourage the child to express the targeted word through use of their AAC device, and depending on their abilities even produce a short phrase containing the stimuli word through use of their AAC device (e.g., "go" through verbal approximations and "I go" through use of AAC).
