I model my treatment method off of DTTC, as this is what I have been trained in and have seen the most progress. I adjust as needed for each child, but there is also a set block of targets for the day, starting with simultaneous productions and fading to independence with progress in sessions. New words/phrases as added in as other mastered targets are faded out after prosody and random practice.
I have always been interested in the CAS population and would like to get more involved in the community. I have attended a DTTC training and taken a few online courses to get a better understanding of the disorder and ways to help. I have treated numerous children in my community with CAS.
Parents are encouraged to be in the room and watch treatment at each session. I describe the goals and targets for each session as well as level of cueing. After a few visits when a child feels successful and is at an appropriate level for home follow through, parents are sent home with their small target list and cueing level necessary.
I enjoy having AAC present in AOS treatments in order to avoid frustration in the kiddos I see. I like to connect to each child on a personal level by asking them about their weekend or recent holidays, and this is generally over their speech production skills level. I also encourage an initial verbal response to attempt communication verbally, but always use AAC as a secondary option in the cases of communication breakdowns, whether that AAC mode be an SGD tablet, paper system, or simply a journal they can write in with their family over the week.
