Describe treatment approach used: My treatment approach is personal and individualized for every child. After a comprehensive assessment, I establish a child's phonetic repertoire and begin building on sounds they already have. Not every CAS protocol works across the board, so I experiment with two specific treatments, Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC) or The Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol; both of which I typically pair with PROMPT cues. Regardless of the protocol, I am careful to collaborate with the parents of my client to establish functional words the child and family can use on a daily basis. Treatment sessions are focused on the motor planning with reinforcements provided such as a preferred toy, book, puzzle, etc. My clients and I work together in a positive, collaborative, and fun environment!

Describe parent/caregiver involvement: While I find 1:1 treatment the most effective, parents are actively involved in collaboration and discussion regarding functional targets that will benefit their child on a daily basis. At the time home practice is appropriate, strategies are always shared and encouraged for at-home carry over!

Describe your past and current involvement in the Apraxia community​?​ I have been actively taking as many courses as I can for CAS treatment with renowned experts such as Dave Hammer, Edythe Strand, and Nancy Kaufman. I now work in collaboration with Sue Caspari and Colleagues in the Philadelphia Area. I was lucky enough to observe a day at her CAS intensive camp this past summer of 2017. I directly collaborate with fellow CAS-focused speech-language pathologists. I recently gave a talk to a local parents support group whose children have CAS.
