Success with Speech Sound Disorders
Course Type: PowerPoint Video
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.
This course provides a framework for 1) better classification of speech disorders and 2) implementing therapy strategies that have been proven to improve intelligibility for specific disorder classes.
Participants will be able to:
- List subgroups of speech sound disorders
- Describe differences in articulatory and phonological development and error patterns in Spanish and in English
- Discuss existing therapy approaches and programs for addressing speech sound disorders
- Understand which strategies are most appropriate for a child, depending on his/her types of errors
