Beacons of Best Practice: Sound Articulation Treatment (Day One)

Presented by Jennifer Taps Richard, M.A., CCC-SLP (6 hrs)

This session presents an innovative approach for addressing the needs of children with mild articulation disorders in the public school setting. San Diego Unified School District shifted its services to a general education service delivery model for these students. Resources and procedures are described. The session features evidence-based intervention practices and videos to demonstrate these principles. Ten years of project data illustrate the efficacy of this short-term, intensive approach, which strives to remediate mild articulation errors in 20 hours or less. The session concludes with a discussion of future implications and best practices in the schools.
