Speech Sound Treatment: A Look at Three Evidence-Based Approaches (PD102212)

Presenter(s): Holly Storkel, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course Description

This recorded session from ASHA’s 2021 Schools Connect online conference reviews three evidence-based approaches to selecting and contrasting two or more sounds during speech sound disorder treatment: minimal pair (one misarticulated sound paired with its typical substitution), maximal opposition (two misarticulated sounds that differ greatly from one another), and multiple opposition (multiple misarticulated sounds that are all replaced within the same substitute). The speaker shares evidence supporting each treatment approach and uses hypothetical clinical cases to illustrate sound selection and treatment activities.

Learning Outcomes

You will be able to:

  • Select treatment sounds based on (a) a traditional minimal pair approach; (b) a maximal opposition/empty set treatment approach; and/or (c) a multiple opposition treatment approach
  • Identify children on your caseload who are appropriate for each paired treatment approach
  • Plan treatment session activities consistent with each paired treatment approach
