There are several common approaches to remediation of phonological disorders in young children. Research points to several approaches that may be the most efficient. This includes careful analysis of phonological errors, systematic selection of target phonemes, development of stimulability for sounds, and use of specifically designed contrast pairs as key components of efficient phonological treatment. This course examines that research and suggests strategies incorporating these elements into a therapeutic routine. 


The goal of this course is to introduce learners to evidence-based practices in phonology intervention that are based on strategies for error analysis and target selection that significantly differ from traditional approaches to these clinical tasks.

The content in this course is applicable to speech-language pathologists (SLPs) in pediatric settings.

After taking this course, you should be able to:
  • Identify necessary elements of phonological assessment.
  • Analyze results of a sample client’s phonological testing.
  • Select appropriate phonemic targets for intervention.
  • Describe four therapy strategies facilitating phonological development in young children.
