What is DTTC?

By Once Upon a Time Foundation

DTTC is a treatment method designed specifically for children with severe CAS,  especially those who were not successful with more traditional forms of therapy,  and has been used successfully with moderate CAS as well. DTTC is a motor-based approach, meaning it is designed to improve the brain’s ability to plan and program movements for speech, which most experts believe is the underlying cause of CAS.

The Cycles Phonological Remediation Approach (Hodson & Paden, 1991Hodson, 2010Prezas & Hodson, 2010) is a prominent intervention method for treating severe speech sound disorders (SSD) in preschool and school age children. Not only is it one of the most frequently implemented phonological methods in clinical practice (Rvachew, Nowak, & Cloutier, 2004), but it has also been accepted as a standard method for treating SSDs in research studies.
