Following this event participants will be able to:

• Select and implement core assessment procedures so as to differentially diagnose children’s SSD
• Choose an appropriate intervention approach or approaches, based on assessment findings
• Identify optimal targets and goals within those approaches
• Implement the approaches
• Consider how some therapies might be modified, where necessary, to suit clinical conditions that
do not match the ‘research conditions’ within which the therapy was evaluated

Content & Format:

The range of evidence-based and/or theoretically sound intervention approaches SLPs/SLTs employ to work with children with SSD is extensive. They include: Auditory Input Therapy / Naturalistic Intervention, Core Vocabulary Therapy, the Cycles Phonological Patterns Approach, DynamicTemporal and Tactile Cueing, Imagery Therapy, Integral Stimulation, Metaphon, Parents and ChildrenTogether (PACT), Perceptually based intervention, Phoneme Awareness Intervention, Phonemic Intervention including four minimal pair approaches, Phonetic Intervention / Articulation Therapy, Psycholinguistic Intervention, Rapid Syllable Transition Training (ReST), Stimulability Therapy, The Multisensory Approach, The Nuffield Centre Dyspraxia Programme, and Vowel Remediation.

These approaches are described in detail in Bowen (2015). There are too many to cover in detail in one, or even two days, so Dr Bowen will work with hosts to choose their preferred interventions to meet the learning needs of  participants, along with the assessment procedures and target selection strategies that are congruent with the chosen intervention approaches.
