  5. Purpose There are a number of evidence-based treatments for preschool children with phonological disorders (Baker & McLeod, 2011). However, a recent survey by Brumbaugh and Smit (2013) suggests that speech-language pathologists are not equally familiar with all evidence-based treatment alternatives, particularly the complexity approach. The goal of this clinical tutorial is to provide coaching.

Baker and McLeod's review of phonological treatment approaches shows the evidence for a wide variety of phonological treatments (Baker & McLeod, 2011, see Table 5).

Complexity—focuses on more complex, linguistically marked phonological elements not in the child's phonological system to encourage Treatment selection will depend on a number of factors, including the child's age, the type of speech sound errors, the severity of the disorder, and the degree to which the disorder affects overall. This results in system-wide phonological change: the goal of the treatment. 9. Does it work? As far as phonological treatments go, the Complexity Approach has a fairly strong research evidence base (e.g. Baker & McLeod, 2011). But we don't yet have much clinical evidence showing it actually working in the real world. 10 The complexity approach for phonological treatment is the epitome of working smarter, not harder as a school SLP.

  1. Complexity of the Input in Clinical Treatment. Phonological complexity can take a number of different forms in keeping with epistemic, ontological, and functional perspectives (for review, see Gierut, 1998, 2001; Gierut et al., 1996). The discussion herein concentrates on the functional level of phonological complexity, beginning with an.

Purpose. The purpose of the present study was to analyze phonetic complexity in the speech of children who stutter in a manner distinct from previous research with specific emphasis on three methodological considerations: (1) analysis of the word immediately following the initial word in the utterance; (2) accounting for other additional linguistic and lexical factors; and (3) discrimination.

  1. And that's pretty much the case with phonological research. But in looking at the original complexity studies, most kids received about 20 to 25 hours of intervention over 10 weeks and they increased an average of 20 to 25% in their consonance correct, which is a huge gain in a short amount of time
  2. When phonological targets are more complex, assume increased demand on phonological and motor plan; therefore, more time for phonological planning may be beneficial. 4. Prolonged speech also allows more time for phonological planning and execution

The phonological errors of the child seemed to be constant, as most errors were noted in syllables containing the /ɾ/ sound. The treatment program included restoring articulation of the /ɾ/ sound in closed CVC syllables and sound clusters, according to the above methodology. All sessions ran smoothly and were completed in full The phonological systems of children with Down syndrome are influenced by a variety of factors that can create difficulties perceiving and producing speech. In addition to the cognitive deficit that is the primary marker of the syndrome, hearing loss and differences in anatomy and physiology are contributing factors Theoretical accounts and clinical management of pediatric speech sound disorders (SSD) are limited by previous research.

Treatment studies have demonstrated that generalisation across behaviours increases when there is a hierarchical relationship between trained and untrained targets (eg, within category generalisation from abstract words to concrete words,51 when more complex words or sentences are selected for treatment of word finding or syntax, respectively6. The present case study describes a complexity approach to the treatment of tense and agreement deficits in a child (SC, age 3 years and 11 months, male) with a delay in morphosyntax. We investigate whether it is possible to elicit target treatment structures (auxiliary BE in questions) in a child who does not attempt them spontaneously These three components were found to be important factors in the relation between phonological awareness and word reading efficiency. In the present research, we focused on the phonological complexity of the words, by using phonologically difficult distractors, while keeping the other two components constant

In contrast, Ebert and Kohnert (2010) point out that the effectiveness of speech therapy might also be due to common factors which include (following Grencavage and Norcross): the patient, the clinician, and the patient-clinician alliance, change processes, and treatment structure.

In languages such as English, dysgraphic patients misspell irregularly spelled words e.g., eyes → AIS and make errors with homophone-word mixing in writing as a consequence of the.

phonological complexity. A particular deficit on consonants is reported in the literature (Gallon et al., 2007, for consonant clusters, Tamburelli & Jones, 2013, for coda position). These difficulties can cause reduction of consonant clusters resulting in a simple CV syllables as in (1a), in production of an epentheti They performed a factor analysis of outcomes from 110 children (68 males, 42 females; aged 6 to 11 years) with susAPD on a widely used clinical test battery (SCAN-C) and a research test battery (MRC Institute of Hearing Research Multi-center Auditory Processing IMAP), that have age-based normative data Assessment of Bilingual Children. The following protocol for bilingual phonological assessment was developed based on the theoretical rationale that bilingual children maintain separation for some phonological elements while demonstrating interaction on others. Step 1: Perform a detailed case history Assessment of Underlying Clinical Behaviors Three subtests were administered: Word association, Phonological Awareness, Rapid Automatic Naming, and the memory subtests. According to the Word Association, Bernie met the criterion with a score of 19. In the area of Phonological Awareness, he did not meet criterion

A person's stuttering is not random. Linguistic factors have been considered relevant to stuttering especially since early research (Brown, 1937, 1945) demonstrated their strong influence on the occurrence of stuttering events, or moments of stuttering, in specific locations of the speech stream (e.g., the beginning of sentences and phrases) and in words of certain grammatical classes.

While all treatment combinations showed improvements, evidence from maintenance and generalization measures indicate that a phonological processes approach is the most effective, regardless of if the treatment is applied to the modalities independently or separately necessary to determine the optimum form and content of treatment.
