Besides stimulability, key word what are other criterion for selecting treatment targets
emerging of sound and phonetic placement/shaping
what child can produce with max cueing (visual, auditory, kinesthetic)
emerging of sound
correctly produced sound on10-50% of all occasions
treatment target produced in a word with 90% accuracy
teaching production of target w/manual guidance/touching them
How many targets are selected for therapy?
depends on approach you can choose-traditional approach & phonological approach
How many targets does traditional approach use
one target per session
How many targets does phonological approach use
group of sounds
Besides setting a time, what are the other 2 criteria in deciding when to adjust treatment targets
Flexibility-change target if kid gets tired and percentage work on target until mastery is achieved
name 3 additional Level of linguistic complexity besides Isolation, nonsense syllables, words
phrases,sentences, spontaneous speech
When do we switch linguistic levels?
when child achieves 70-75% on a level move him up
what are articulation goals ?
objectives to accomplish
what do goals do?
gives you direction to move on to, allows you to document progress for parents/client/insurance companies to see
Some articulation goals are family concern, personal gut feelings, normative data and name 3 more
Intelligibility, stimulability and developmental charts
These are 3 types of goals
Long term, short term and daily
Long term goals sample is
mia will be 95% intelligible in conversational speech during 3 consecutive 3 minute language samples.
Short term goals sample is
mia will correctly produce /s/ phoneme in isolation following a clinician model w/95% accuracy
What do we use with daily goals
sandwich approach-easy work at first, hard work in the middle to tax his system-easy to make child want to come back
Besides position of sound and level of complexity some other Articulation goals are:
1. sound that you are working on and Criteria- percentage of accuracy
Describe what is level of complexity within the articulation goals
in isolation, words, syllables, phrases, sentences or conversation.
Progress on each numbered goal must include these 3 elements
Baseline data, therapy approach, post data
What is baseline data
measure rate of behavior in absence of treatment
pre-therapy baselines are done
before treatment to see where to start
post therapy baselines are done
to see how much progress has been made, effectiveness of treatment
