Accreditation Check:

Recent advances in the clinical management of SSD in children point to the important role of target selection in treatment outcomes. In fact, there is some evidence that what you choose to work on in intervention is just as important as how you address the goal in intervention. The construct of learnability in phonological intervention will be discussed with regard to three different approaches to target selection. Alternatives to developmental norms will be presented for achieving the greatest phonological change in the least amount of time.

1. Approaches to Target Selection

Dr. Williams will teach you how to evaluate traditional and phonological approaches to, and the influence of phonological complexity on target selection. You will be able to determine target selection using distance metrics and compare and contrast target selection approaches and identify IEP goals.

2. Developmental Norms

In chapter 2 you will understand the history and significance of residual errors for phenomes and Evaluate methods for selecting challenging targets for interventions. Dr. Williams will compare and contrast high and low challenge targets.
