Devyn is comfortable using a variety of methods depending on the specific needs of the child she is working with. When working with younger children, sessions tend to be mainly child-directed in order to keep them engaged during the sessions. As the child gets older, they move more towards a clinician-directed session depending on how much structure is needed in the session. She loved getting parents involved in the child’s treatment and giving them strategies and techniques to use at home and to help them generalize outside of the therapy setting.
Some of the training and techniques Devyn is familiar with using include the following:
• Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC)
• Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT)
• Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)
• Alternative Augmented Communication (AAC)
