This comprehensive interactive CD-ROM resource profiles the articulation ability of a client, identifies areas in particular need of treatment and provides the material and tools to create tailor-made practice worksheets. This easy-to-use CD-ROM generates word lists according to the linguistic and phonetic criteria defined by the therapist. Words can also be added to the Library by the therapist allowing it to grow over time and to store a large number of words for articulation practice. Tailor-made lists of practice words and sentences, as well as pictures and instructions, can be designed and printed for individual clients or students. There are seven levels of articulation practice in the order of single sounds; consonant-vowel combinations; DDK rates; short words; multisyllabic words; short phrases with the target sound in one word; and longer sentences saturated with the target sound. The work includes an articulation screening test using words not in the Library to indicate the areas of greatest difficulty and to assess the generalisation of articulation skills.
This versatile resource can be used with adults or children and will be invaluable to speech language therapists, teachers, and students of phonetics.
Rebecca Palmer is a speech language therapist currently working at the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield and at the University of Sheffield on a research project to develop a computer program to supplement articulation therapy. Athanassios Protopapas is a Principal Researcher at the Institute of Language and Speech Processing (ILSP) and teaches graduate-level courses at the University of Athens.
