Description: This is one-of-a-kind resource presents a wide range of expert opinions about phonological disorders in children, allowing readers to understand and compare diverse approaches to assessment and intervention, choose the ones that will work best, and use their new knowledge to make decisions during clinical interventions. For each of the book's three sections--Assessment and Classification. Goal and Target Selection, and Intervention--the editors pose important "frequently asked questions" for each contributor to answer, on topics such as diagnostic classification systems, integration of language goals with phonological goals, selection of treatment goals and targets, individual therapy versus group therapy, and what to do when an intervention plan is not working. Through the theoretical insights and practical experience each contributor shares--and a helpful conclusion that comments on all the approaches discussed--readers will have the broad and balanced knowledge they need for informed clinical decision making. Speech-language parhologists, graduate students, audiologists, and educators will use this comprehensive, accessible resource to shape their practices and improve the lives of children with phonological disorders.

A. Lynn Williams, Ph.D., joined the Communicative Disorders faculty of East Tennessee State University in 1995 following academic positions at Oklahoma State University and California State University at Fullerton. 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)-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.
