Describe treatment approach used: I develop an inventory of potential sounds and words to target (to maximize participation and success). I use a play-based approach initially to engage the child in oral and vocal play including potential targets. I gradually increase the speech sound and CV combinations in length and complexity, continually assessing and readjusting goals and strategies to maximize success. I provide multiple repeated opportunities for practice to establish greater consistency and carryover of goals. I monitor other features of communication and address as needed (e.g. prosody, syntax, grammar, etc.). I work with the family members along all steps of the treatment process to encourage home practice of reasonable targets to maximize success.

Describe parent/caregiver involvement: All parents are invited and encouraged to participate within the session to observe strategies and be infused within therapy activities. Homework is provided and reviewed weekly. Parents report on successes and challenges, so that adjustments and new strategies can be made.
