Improving Speech Skills Using Curriculum Content
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
Clinicians frequently find that children with speech sound
disorders progress in intervention more slowly than desired, or they may make
expected progress within sessions but not carry over or generalize improved
speech skills to their daily activities. There is some evidence that using
normalized speech sound intervention – treatment activities that reflect the real-world
activities and interactions in which children communicate – can lead to more
rapid increases in intelligibility. In this course, Melanie Schuele provides participants with
the knowledge and skills to implement normalized speech sound intervention
using age and developmentally appropriate curriculum-based learning activities
in which the production of speech sound targets is integrated in meaningful
verbal and social interactions.
You will be able to:
- implement speech sound
intervention using curriculum-based activities that are age and developmentally
appropriate in order to increase rate of change and boost carryover and
provide speech sound practice in
normalized adult-child verbal interactions in which the cognitive-linguistic
demands on children are systematically varied in order to practice speech sound
production in meaningful interactions
- design strategies to help
teachers and parents provide both specific and broad target recasts in order to
further child progress in speech sound intervention
