Speech Sound Disorders in Preschool and School-Age Children
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
Children with speech sound disorders make up a large part
of the caseload for many SLPs who work with preschool and school-age children.
Speech sound disorders not only affect a child’s ability to communicate at a
young age but also may lead to later speech and literacy difficulties. This
journal self-study explores issues related to managing speech sound disorders,
including assessment and treatment options. It also includes articles that
identify predictors of future speech and literacy problems. Clinicians can use
this information to help identify appropriate assessment tools and potential
treatment options, as well as counsel parents and teachers of children who may
be at risk for continuing speech and academic difficulties.
You will be able to:
appropriate speech sound assessments based upon client needs
factors that may influence the success of classroom and computer-based
how assessment of polysyllables may assist in the identification of children at
risk for later literacy difficulties
early childhood and school-age predictors associated with persistent speech
