For children with moderate to severe CAS, I use the child's evaluation to guide my clinical decisions. I have found that frequent shorter sessions are more productive and use a variety of reinforcement techniques to keep the child motivated while working (throwing a ball through a hoop, blowing bubbles), so that we get a large amount of practice in each session. Therapy focuses on helping the child plan and program motor movements from one sound or syllable to another without unnatural pauses. Clinical decisions are made rapidly within each session to determine the level of cueing the child needs to be successful, with the ultimate goal of accurate spontaneous productions from the child.
I plan on increasing my involvement in the Apraxia community by being on the directory and increasing the number of children with CAS on my caseload. Currently, I've mainly been active by giving numerous families on my caseload parent education and other resources.
Parents either sit in the session or have a 5 minute consult with me after each session. I also communicate with them via email for parent education resources.
In the past before my PROMPT and DTTC training, some children came to me with AAC devices that they used to get needs met. Most were able to be discontinued after months of speech therapy.
