Phonological Processes

Author: Autism Priority Project
Description: This set of three webshops explore the definition of phonological processes, assessment, and intervention.
Webshops:
  1. Speech language pathologists working with students in the public schools consistently encounter children with low speech intelligibility and incorrect production of multiple speech sounds. Considering the speech production of these children in terms of phonological processes is a way to enhance the assessment and remediation of their speech. This first of three workshops will address what phonological processes are and why we should consider them. The information presented can be considered a basic introduction for SLPs who are unfamiliar with phonological processes and as a review and update for those who have had training in this area.
  2. This is the second webshop on the topic of phonological processes. In this webshop, speech language pathologists can explore how to assess phonological processes in children, particularly those with multiple speech sound errors and low speech intelligibility. Further, SLPs can learn how to use comprehensive evaluation to help gain a picture of how the disorder may be affecting the child and to gather information to plan for remediation. The information presented can be considered a basic introduction for SLPs who are unfamiliar with phonological processes and as a review and update for those who have had training in this area.
  3. This is the third webshop on the topic of phonological processes. In this webshop, speech language pathologists can explore how to use the information gathered in a comprehensive evaluation to plan for the remediation of phonological processes in children, particularly those with multiple speech sound errors and low speech intelligibility. Further, SLPs can explore remediation techniques. The information presented can be considered a basic introduction for SLPs who are unfamiliar with phonological processes and as a review and update for those who have had training in this area.
