Effective Evaluation and Intervention Procedures for Frontal and Lateral Lisp Disorders

Course: #5900 Level: Introductory 1 Hour 73 Reviews

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.
