Activity Steps


Note: ASHA CEUs cannot be reported to ASHA unless your ASHA member number is included in your profile.

Over the past 12 years, on average, over 90% of school-based SLPs reported treating speech-sound disorders (SSDs), one of the most common types of pediatric communication disorders. Children with an SSD are at increased risk academically, socially, and economically (i.e., employment opportunities). School-based SLPs, need a variety of evidence-based interventions at their disposal to effectively treat these children. Using case studies, the authors describe and contrast a traditional motor articulatory-based approach with phonologically-based intervention approaches.
