Describe treatment approach used: I am PROMPT certified (level 3). The PROMPT therapy method is the main treatment approach that I utilize for children with suspected and diagnosed CAS. Along with PROMPT, I incorporate Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC) and multi-sensory therapy approaches.

Describe parent/caregiver involvement: I encourage parents to participate in my sessions. I want the parents to learn the techniques that I utilize with their children. This will help with the carry over of skills in the home. My therapy sessions are not just therapy for the child. They are educational for the parents, as well.

Describe your past and current involvement in the Apraxia community​?​ I have been working with the CAS community since I took Level 1 of the PROMPT therapy training in 2000. I continued the training and became PROMPT certified in 2004. Over the years, I have built a caseload that consists of at least 80% of my cases being children either diagnosed or suspected of having CAS. I was extremely lucky and honored to have been selected to attend the CASANA Intensive Training Institute/ Apraxia Bootcamp in August 2016. I completed my case study following bootcamp and am now considered CASANA Recognized for Advanced Training & Expertise in CAS.
