Course Abstract

This course focuses on the connection between speech sound disorders and the phonological bases of reading. Assessment considerations for preschool and young school-age children with speech sound disorders will be described. Treatment approaches that focus on infusing phonological awareness/print awareness into articulation/phonological therapy will be discussed.

Course Learning Outcomes

  • After this course, participants will be able to identify which children with speech sound disorders are at highest risk for reading problems.
  • After this course, participants will be able to describe the theoretical links between speech sound disorders and the phonological bases of reading/spelling.
  • After this course, participants will be able to describe the general developmental progression of phonological awareness.
  • After this course, participants will be able to list and describe three treatment activities that can simultaneously target speech sound production and phonological awareness.

The presentation was clear and very informative and contained examples of a number of intervention methods. I took this course on Thursday and started using the information in therapy on Friday.
Review by: Jennifer on March 12, 2012
It gave some good basic information to phonological awareness. I felt like much was review for me but it could be a very good course to someone without the phonological awareness basis.

Review by: Amy on March 8, 2012
Just a great seminar building on all the courses taught this week on literacy. I really appreciated the idea of merging phonological awareness activities more in with students that are struggling with articulation (seeing the paired PA goals beside artic goals was very helpful). Thanks.
Review by: Frances on March 8, 2012
