Description

Book Summary: With detailed discussion and invaluable video footage of 23 treatment interventions for speech sound disorders (SSDs) in children, this textbook and DVD set should be part of every speech-language pathologist's professional preparation. Focusing on children with functional or motor-based speech disorders from early childhood through the early elementary period, this textbook gives preservice SLPs critical analyses of a complete spectrum of evidence-based phonological and articulatory interventions.

This textbook fully prepares SLPs for practice with

  • a vivid inside look at intervention techniques in action through high-quality DVD clips
  • large and varied collection of intervention approaches with widespread use across ages, severity levels, and populations
  • proven interventions in three categories: direct speech production, broader contexts such as perceptual intervention, and speech movements
  • clear explanations of the evidence behind the approaches so SLPs can evaluate them accurately
  • contributions by well-known experts in SSDs from across the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK

An essential core text for pre-service SLPs—and an important professional resource for practicing SLPs, early interventionists, and special educators—this book will help readers make the best intervention decisions for children with speech sound disorders.

Evidence-based intervention approaches—demonstrated in DVD clips—such as:

  • minimal pairs
  • perceptual intervention
  • core vocabulary
  • stimulability treatment
  • intervention for developmental dysarthria
  • the psycholinguistic approach

Interventions for Speech Sound Disorders in Children is a part of the Communication and Language Intervention Series
