Describe treatment approach used: I recommend frequent and intensive speech intervention once CAS is suspected and then diagnosed. I typically recommend frequency between 3-5x/week with recommended home practice as well. Treatment focuses on speech movement patterns not speech sounds. I provide multisensory cues to assist with production, including tactile-kinesthetic prompts (PROMPT), auditory/verbal cues, visual cues, models, etc. I include principles of motor learning theory into my treatment sessions and home programs, including blocked practice, random practice, etc. I provide specific feedback to children including knowledge of their performance.

Describe parent/caregiver involvement: I involve parents in every step of the evaluation and treatment process. Many parents sit in on my evaluation and treatment sessions. For those that do not, I always include them at the end of my sessions for review of what was targeted, the progress that was made and recommendations for continued home practice. I make myself available to provide outside resources and am always available for questions if they arise outside of the therapy room.

Describe your past and current involvement in the Apraxia community​?​ I have worked with children and their families impacted by CAS for over 20 years. I attend many conferences on the topic of CAS as I have a special interest in this population. In addition to my work experience, I also have a 14 year old son with autism spectrum disorder and CAS. I support my patients, their families and the local community by participating in various walks for CAS through Apraxia Kids and making donations.
