Success with Speech Sound Disorders
Course Type: Video – 1 1/2 hours
ASHA Course Code: Phonology/Articulatory Disorders – 3050
Make your speech therapy soar by understanding what unintelligible really means. Packed with video examples and therapy materials, this presentation will arm you with ways to better define your students and give you intervention strategies to best match their specific deficit. This presentation follows a pilot study where children from two caseloads were better diagnosed using strict criteria for the types of errors they were producing. Therapy techniques per disorder class were applied resulting in an increase in intelligibility for each group. This course includes reproducible decision trees and reference charts to aid in the better diagnosing of speech sound disorders.
