It provides therapy materials and home activities to support the speech-language pathologist SLP in phonology therapy.
Hodson and Paden stress the importance of teaching phonological processes in a "facilitative phonetic environment. The phonetic contexts should not contain more than one error pattern e.
Hodson and Paden also stress the importance of success in therapy; children should experience a high degree of success in therapy to establish an "accurate kinesthetic image of the sound.
This is particularly true in the early cycles of phonology therapy.
So many processes are deviant in the speech of these children that it is extremely difficult to compile an appropriate repertoire of words and pictures to use in therapy and at home for practice.
The advantage of Easy Does It for Articulation A Phonological Approach is in its careful selection of words to use with children who are highly unintelligible. The phonetic context of the target phonological process does not contain other patterns that are typically deviant in the speech of these children.
In addition, the vocabulary is age-appropriate and the pictures are clear and engaging. Given the limited number of words available, the vowel context is controlled as much as possible. Oral-motor activities are included to strengthen speech musculature.
In my experience in working with children who are unintelligible, oral-motor activities play an important part in remediation. I see a lot of children with oral hypersensitivity, weak tongues, poor lip closure, excessive jaw movements, etc. A few simple oral-motor activities can strengthen the speech musculature and give the child a much better awareness of appropriate tongue placement.
The purpose of this program is not to teach the SLP all there is to know about remediation of phonological processing disorders.
Easy Does It for Articulation A Phonological Approach provides easy and effective techniques and materials for use in therapy and for sending home with students for additional practice. It is the SLP's role to assess the child, determine appropriate targets and the progression of targets, develop effective production techniques, and make individual adjustments in the home program.
The SLP would be responsible for assessment, determining appropriate targets, and monitoring the performance of both the SLPA and student. With the help of parents, I have discharged preschool children who initially were unintelligible in months.
I am a strong believer in Hodson and Paden's approach to the remediation of phonological processing disorders. In the past, these children required therapy for years and years.
An efficient and effective phonology therapy program, however, cannot be done without the help of parents. Parents will do their part if given the education and tools.The Development of Phonological Skills.
