This course will provide an overview of the phonological backgrounds of Spanish-speaking children. Dialectal considerations and phonological patterns of typically developing children and children with highly unintelligible speech will be discussed. Additional topics will include information related to assessment, treatment, and school-based issues.
Very specific hierarchy of what sounds/processes to target in Spanish was provided which is the first time I have encountered that. Wish I had access to this last year when I worked with bilingual children!
The presenter delivered an organized lecture. Handouts were great.
