Describe treatment approach used: When working with children with CAS, I often pick a combination of phonemes, tasks, and syllable combinations; some that I anticipate the child will be successful with (to encourage motivation and engaged participation) and others that will be more difficult (identified areas of weakness for the child). I often find it helps to practice target phonemes and/or words multiple times throughout the session but with a variety of materials to keep them engaged and motivated (e.g., practicing the word "pop" with bubbles, a balloon, poppers that pop up, etc.).

Describe parent/caregiver involvement: I encourage parents to observe sessions to learn techniques and strategies that I use within the session. Additionally, I give parents "target words" to practice prior to their next session and give them ideas of activities to utilize while practicing those target words.

Describe your past and current involvement in the Apraxia community​?​ I have attended 2 PROMPT courses to enable me to work more effectively with children who struggle with CAS.
