There are several common approaches to remediation of phonological disorders in young children. The research examining the most efficient approach points to 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 that incorporate these elements into a therapeutic routine.


The goal of this phonology continuing education program 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. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify necessary elements of phonological assessment to support selection of appropriate phonemic targets for intervention
  • Analyze the results of a sample student’s phonological testing and select appropriate targets for intervention
  • List four therapy strategies that facilitate phonological development in young children

It was very informative. It presented information that seemed counterintuitive but supplied the research-based evidence to indicate that it is in fact an effective method.
