Course Abstract

This course will cover evaluation and intervention techniques for frontal and lateral lisp disorders. There are 22 variations or allophones for /s/ and /z/ which include initial and final /s/ blends, initial, medial and final /s/ and /z/. Evaluation is the key to discovering a “key” word or phrase which the student can produce successfully. This key word is the foundation for intervention. It is from this successful production that placement is achieved. The 2 tongue placements for /s/ and /z/ will be discussed along with tips for carryover and working with parents.
Disclosure: This learning event will focus on the "Entire World of S and Z" approach to frontal and lateral lisp disorders and will not include information on other approaches to /s/ and /z/ remediation.

This course was recorded on July 10, 2013

I never thought of starting with the sound in the position that they are successful with. I've always just started in the inital position of words! Good idea.
Review by: Member on July 23, 2014

emphasis on natural tongue placement
Review by: Member on May 21, 2014
It had a lot of examples and was very clear. I will apply the knowledge to my field.
Review by: Member on May 15, 2014
It was a good introductory level course. I have found that many SLPs wait to remediate /s/ and /z/ disorders. I was glad to hear that she recommends intervening immediately, even in preschool, for disordered placement of /s/ and /z/. I would like to have heard her mention the importance of placement of the sides of the tongue on the upper molars for stabilization of the tongue and also the ability to differentiate tongue, jaw and lip movement is critical. At times, oral-motor work is necessary and I have found great success with the MA-CAT.
Review by: Member on May 15, 2014

Review by: Member on December 21, 2013
Nice presentation with a great overview.
Review by: Member on December 17, 2013
The material was well presented and helpful. However, I wish she would've included her professional opinion on best practice rather than just what school districts mandate. Of course I can analyze that information, but I take these courses to learn what experts think to help shape and guide my decision making. Also, for those of us in private practice, it is also a consistent question of when to begin addressing these sounds and I follow international codes and those that indicate much earlier acquisition ages. I wish she could've offered some guidance on these matters. Nonetheless, it was a great presentation.
Review by: Member on December 15, 2013
