Sound Evidence: Clinical Management of Speech Sound Disorders in Children


The purpose of this conference is to discuss evidence-based practices related to the clinical management of speech sound disorders (SSD) in children. Principles of phonological analysis, target selection, and intervention will be presented with emphasis on integrating current research evidence with clinical reasoning to determine the most appropriate approaches to implement with particular subgroups of children with SSD. The Phonological Intervention Taxonomy will be discussed as a way for making reasoned clinical decisions about interventions.


At the end of the conference, participants will be able to:

  • Complete phonological analyses of disordered speech using an error analysis (PVM analysis) and a systemic analysis (SPACS).
  • Apply current research evidence to design and implement an appropriate methodology for a child’s speech sound disorder.
  • Use clinical reasoning to select the most appropriate models for phonological analysis, target selection, and intervention.
