Remediating /r/ and /s/ Effectively and Efficiently

August 8, 2018

Sponsored by SATPAC Speech

This free online vendor chat sponsored by SATPAC will discuss ways to remediate the /r/ and /s/ sounds in a fraction of the time for most students compared to compared to traditional methods. Using a unique combination of evidence-based techniques as well as a systematic program developed by the presenter and used for the past 23 years, exceptional results have been obtained which have resulted in 4 peer-reviewed studies in the past 5 years showing its effectiveness.

Because the ultimate goal of speech therapy is normal conversational speech, techniques which incorporate conversational elements such as coarticulation, natural prosody and normal rate are used throughout the remediation process as well as some best practices such as the use of facilitating contexts, non-words and lots and lots of repetitions to develop correct and consistent motor patterns. Please bring all your /r/ and /s/ questions to this live online chat which will be presented by:

  • Stephen Sacks,  Developer of the SATPAC Program and recipient of the 2011 Rolland J. Van Hattum Award
