Describe treatment approach used: In the beginning, I facilitate speech movement sequences to develop ‘core’ words (e.g. ‘help’, ‘all done’, ‘eat’) that help children attain functional verbal communication and reduce their frustration. I use verbal, visual, and tactile cues to elicit specific speech movements and coordination. I educate parents about CAS and coach them on techniques used in therapy for home carryover - providing continuity and reinforcement of skills. The use of AAC may be considered to give the child a way to communicate while working on verbal expression. I try to use activities/games that are naturally repetitive and keep children engaged. Increasing the level of sound sequence complexity will continue throughout the course of therapy to increase intelligibility.

Describe parent/caregiver involvement: - Parents are given an explanation of what CAS is, will be encouraged to ask questions, and be informed on the importance and intensity of treatment sessions and home programs

- Parents will be taught the importance of repetition and practice for home programs, simple cuing methods, and strategies to bring functional phrases and words in to meaningful real-world application

- Parents are encouraged to attend therapy sessions in part or in whole to see how to help their child at home and to see modeling techniques that they may also use to facilitate the accuracy of practice at home.

Describe your past and current involvement in the Apraxia community​?​ I have had a long-term passion for increasing my knowledge of CAS through continuing education and observation of treatment sessions with seasoned therapists
