Accelerating Progress for Young Children With Severe Speech Sound Disorders

This presentation will discuss assessment and intervention for speech sound disorders, with emphasis on linguistically based target selection and intervention. It will challenge participants to consider a new way of viewing their target selection and practice items and will describe and provide practice with understanding the underlying phonological information, including phonological complexity and feature distinctions. We will also provide participants with grounding in the nature of contrasts, as well as practice in the selection of targets and pairs with reference to a sample case of a child with a profound speech sound disorder.

Diagnostic strategies and a model therapy routine incorporating evidenced-based principles for speech sound intervention in the schools will be introduced and discussed, including ideas for target selection, practice, motivation in the face of “difficult” tasks, and data collection. Video demonstration of intervention activities and children’s pre- and post-speech samples will be included.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • describe target selection based on phonological knowledge
  • describe minimal pair intervention based on maximal oppositions
  • describe how these techniques can be implemented with children in a school setting
