Describe treatment approach used: My treatment approach is based on the principles of motor learning and individualized to meet each child's needs. I utilize PROMPTS for restructuring oral muscular phonetic targets (PROMPT), Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC), Rapid Syllable Transition Treatment (ReST), and the Kaufman Method. I strive to make therapy fun and productive. In addition to motor speech, my approach also focuses on functional communication and language development

Describe parent/caregiver involvement: Parents are actively involved in the therapeutic process. I strive to provide ongoing education regarding a child's diagnosis and treatment. I encourage families to help their children practice targets at home and in the community.
