This subject will provide the foundation theoretical and professional skills necessary
for competent practice in the assessment and treatment/management of speech sound
disorder in children and adolescents. Aetiological factors, and models and processes
explaining speech difference and impairment will be discussed. Pre-literacy skills
including phonological awareness and their relationship to both speech and written
literacy (reading and spelling) will be discussed. Implications across linguistic
and cultural contexts will be considered. Assessment and intervention methods will
be explored with respect to current theories and evidence-based practice principles.
The effects of speech impairments on activity and participation in educational and
community contexts will be explored.
- analyse child speech assessment data and determine appropriate intervention goals;
- formulate and justify intervention plans and approaches based on sound theoretical
and evidence-based principles;
- explain the impact of speech sound disorders on activity and participation in educational
and community contexts.
