Describe treatment approach used: My treatment approach is to provide education to the families regarding best practice for carryover at home. I encourage parents to join the therapy sessions which facilitates the greatest carryover. I ask parents to provide me with a list of family names and any other words that they feel is important to their child's daily needs. These words are incorporated and modified into the core words that will be utilized into the daily practice.
Therapy follows the PROMPT guidelines which systematically works through the various speech subsystems: tone, mandibular control, labial facial, etc. while incorporating appropriate cognitive, physical and social emotional goals and intervention.
As the child's speech motor movements improve I often assess the phonological patterns that have or have not been suppressed and then plan therapy using the Phonological Cycles Approach (Hodsen) in conjunction with PROMPT.
