Describe treatment approach used: I use a variety of approaches to treating a child with CAS depending on their severity and presentation. Structure of therapy is based on the principles of motor learning. Examples of approaches incorporated include Dynamic Temporal Tactile Cueing and Multi-sensory Therapy Approach.

Describe parent/caregiver involvement: I utilize a family centered therapy approach where the family is an integral part of the therapy process. The family helps to identify goals and/or targets that are most functional. I also educate and train families to carryover therapy activities/practice to the home environment for generalization. Families, including siblings, are incorporated into therapy activities as appropriate and encouraged to observe each session
