Describe treatment approach used: For kids with CAS, I start therapy with what they have - build off of acquired V, VC, CV, CVC combinations. I make sure they are watching my face so they can see my mouth move. We practice the speech movements together and work towards fading out simultaneous productions until they can say the words and phrases independently. The most important factor is repetition, repetition, repetition! The more practice we get in during the session, the greater progress they will make!

Describe parent/caregiver involvement: Parents are encouraged to be in the therapy room to observe, ask questions and practice with their child during therapy so that they can continue the practice at home. Homework is given weekly or as needed when new skills are acquired. I encourage parents to practice speech skills daily – even 5-10 minutes will make a huge difference in the child’s success!

Describe your past and current involvement in the Apraxia community​?​ I have attended conferences and professional development to increase my understanding and ability to treat children with CAS. I have directed parents to websites and Facebook groups for support.
