Phonological Processes—What Are They?
Description: 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.
