The purpose of this book is to describe and critically analyze a spectrum of phonologic and articulatory intervention approaches used in the treatment of speech sound disorders (SSD) in children. This book and DVD set includes 23 treatment approaches used with young children with functional or motor-based speech disorders from early childhood through the early elementary period that have been selected based on their empirical evidence or potential efficacy, as well as their widespread use across ages, severity levels, and populations. It also includes intervention approaches that target phonological impairments (i.e., Minimal Pairs & Multiple Oppositions), articulation impairments (i.e., Vowel Intervention), and motor speech disorders (i.e., PROMPT & Nonspeech Oral Motor Treatment) that encompass a range of treatments that focus on sound production accuracy, system-wide restructuring, perceptual training, and overall speech intelligibility.
"An outstanding collection of approaches . . . a perfect blend of practical and theoretical information. I can't wait to use this book with my students!"--Karen E. Pollock, Ph.D."University of Alberta" (04/01/2010)
