What Works for Speech Sound Disorders: Using Evidence to Guide Practice
Extensive evidence is available to guide clinical practice for children with speech sound disorders that can make assessments and treatment more effective, efficient, and productive. This course will help practicing clinicians understand how to utilize the latest evidence-based information so that assessments can be more meaningful and therapy more impactful. Topics include: understanding new terminology, reinterpreting speech norms, modify use of phonological processes, examine the use of nonspeech oral motor exercises, select appropriate articulatory and/or phonological assessment and treatment approaches.
Q11: Is this a hands on workshop?
Q12: Expected Learner Outcomes (List three)Following this session, attendees will be able to:
Outcome 1:Compare and contrast current with new thinking about the use of developmental speech sound norms and phonological processes

Outcome 3:8. Select appropriate articulatory and/or phonological assessment and treatment approaches.
