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 interesting. I learned the old school hierarchy approach to articulation. I have had to learn how to work on phonological processes as treatment and has been difficult. Some things I have done right, others not so much. This is the second course i took that suggests starting with the most complex for teaching strategies. guess I will have to try it.

Quite a wake up call and very salient to the population with which I work. The course gave an excellent description of the principles and the practice for the concepts presented so that I feel confident that I can try them out and put them into practice.
