Describe treatment approach used: Since children with childhood apraxia of speech often present their own unique speech characteristics, I always taylor my therapy approach to the specific needs of that child. I incorporate principles of motor planning and motor learning. I provide visual and tactile cues as needed and fade cues over time as a child is ready to produce sound patterns/movements independently. I limit practice items initially and slowly expand practice targets, depending on a child's severity level and readiness. I always include parent education to guide and encourage home practice for consistency. Repetitive practice is a must and can be challenging for young children so I do my best to make it fun and motivating which can be key in keeping a child attentive and ready to practice!

Describe parent/caregiver involvement: Parents are an essential part of the therapy process. Parents are given specific homework to practice with their child as well as guidelines on how to cue him/her for sound productions and movement patterns. Parents are asked for feedback on how their child is able to function at home or in other settings outside of the therapy room.
