The purpose of this book is to describe and critically analyze a spectrum of phonologic and articulatory intervention approaches used in the treatment of speech sound disorders (SSD) in children. This book and DVD set includes 23 treatment approaches used with young children with functional or motor-based speech disorders from early childhood through the early elementary period that have been selected based on their empirical evidence or potential efficacy, as well as their widespread use across ages, severity levels, and populations. It also includes intervention approaches that target phonological impairments (i.e. Minimal Pairs and Multiple Oppositions), articulation impairments (i.e., Vowel Intervention), and motor speech disorders (i.e., PROMPT and Nonspeech Oral Motor Treatment) that encompass a range of treatments that focus on sound production accuracy, system-wide restructuring, perceptual training, and overall speech intelligibility.

Working with various colleagues, Dr. Warren has contributed to the creation of pre-linguistic and milieu intervention approaches. Much of his research has focused on the effect of these intervention approaches and on the role of parenting on moderating the impact of developmental disorders, such as Down syndrome and fragile X Syndrome. Marc E. Fey, Ph.D., Professor, Hearing and Speech Department, University of Kansas Medical Center, Mailstop 3039, 3901 Rainbow Boulevard, HC Miller Building, Kansas City, Kansas 66160Dr. Marc E.

Most of her research over the past decade has involved clinical investigations of models of phonological treatment for children with severe to profound speech disorders. She developed an alternative model of phonological intervention, called "multiple oppositions," which she has examined in National Institutes of Health (NIH)a funded treatment efficacy studies and recently has compared with other models of contrastive phonological intervention. Dr. Williams is the author of SCIP: Sound Contrasts in Phonology, a phonological intervention software program that was funded through the National Institute of Deafness and Communicative Disorders.
