- Achieving Milestones Pediatric Therapy
I use a multi-sensory approach, utilizing a specific protocol such as Kaufman, immediate feedback, tactile cues, visual cues, melodic intonation, and high intensity motor planning therapy. I utilize low tech and high tech AAC depending on the severity of the child's speech disorder. I recommend high intensity, shorter sessions, with a weekly frequency of 3-5 sessions per week.
I am currently working with 1 student, whom I have diagnosed with CAS after several misdiagnosis and traditional treatment by other therapists. This student has shown no progress with traditional therapy and demonstrated all the typical characteristics of a child with apraxia. I completed a full evaluation on her, gave parent training, and implemented techniques in order to improve functional communication in a variety of settings. She is currently being seen 3x a week.
Parents are given home work to address with the student between sessions. This may include a repetitive story that the child has been working on, a worksheet with the targeted sound (along with instructions of the proper oral motor visual and tactile cues), or something that I want to carry over to the home environment such as the use of functional words "hi or bye" etc. Progress is discussed frequently and concerns are always heard and addressed. If the use of AAC is involved then parents may need additional training to carry over the use to the home setting.
I have used a low tech board for functional communication using language that the student would use in a classroom. This was used to increase communication between the student and teacher and decrease frustration levels. I have also use a high tech device called LAMP that has auditory feedback, as well as utilizes a consistent motor pattern for speech generation.
