Enhancing Phonological and Metaphonological Skills of Children With Highly Unintelligible Speech

Uploaded: October 10, 2013 |  0 Comments  | 

This session focuses on children with severely impaired phonological systems, including those with the label, Childhood Apraxia of Speech. Information about methods for expediting intelligibility gains is presented in the first two parts, including identification of patterns of phonological deviations, selection of optimal target patterns, and specific information regarding treatment. Because children with highly unintelligible speech frequently experience difficulties in the domain of early literacy, information about assessing and enhancing metaphonological skills is explained in the third part. Assessment results and outcome data for a preschool client and also video clips are provided in the last part to exemplify evidence-based practices.

Handouts include:
1. Powerpoint presentation
2. Exercise 2 – Phonology & Metaphonology
3. Selected Clinical Phonology/Metaphonology/Literacy References
4. Figure 1 – Potential Optimal Primary Phonological Patterns
