We are excited to present our keynote speaker for the 2015 Metro Speech Language Symposium, Dr. Nancy Creaghead.
INTERVENTION FOR CHILDREN WITH PHONOLOGICAL DISORDERS
This presentation will discuss current assessment and intervention strategies for children with severe speech sound disorders, with an emphasis on linguistic theory and linguistically based analysis, target selection, and intervention methods. Additional topics covered to be covered include:
• current research regarding treatment decisions that facilitate widespread change in the child's phonological system,
• explanation of approaches based on least phonological knowledge as described by Judy Gierut,
• comparison/combination with Barbara Hodson’s methods,
• intervention in preschool and school settings.
