 Course description:

Diagnosis and treatment of children with severe speech sound disorders can be challenging, particularly when a child presents with multiple issues.  However, differential diagnosis is essential for developing appropriate treatment goals and techniques.  This course will review recent research that supports clinical decision-making regarding diagnosis and treatment of CAS.  Assessment procedures, including standardized tools and dynamic assessment will be reviewed.  Research on intervention practices will also be reviewed with a focus on how these studies can inform clinical practice for treatment of severe speech sound disorders. Video examples will be shown and small group activities will be used to demonstrate application of material presented in lecture.
