This is Part 1 of a four-part series on severe phonological disorders. Research-based selection of speech sound targets for treatment has the potential to significantly accelerate children’s therapy progress. This course will examine research supporting use of a non-traditional approach to selecting speech sound targets in order to facilitate rapid change in overall intelligibility. It will then discuss how to apply that research to treatment decisions in daily clinical practice. (Part 2: Course 8928, Part 3: Course 8938, Part 4: Course 8946)
