Targeting Intelligible Speech: A Phonological Approach to Remediation

Targeting Intelligible Speech

A Phonological Approach to Remediation

Second Edition

Barbara Williams Hodson and Elaine Pagel Paden


Targeting Intelligible Speech provides practical guidelines for efficient assessment, analysis, and remediation of unintelligible speech patterns. Drawing on 15 years of clinical research with more than 200 clients, the authors carefully explain the cycles approach, which is based on developmental phonology research findings and cognitive psychology principles. Phonological scores (pre- and post-remediation) are provided for three highly unintelligible clients (ages 3 to 14 years). In addition, their goals and cycles, as well as rationales for targets, are explained in depth. The appendices include a sample lesson plan, examples of production-practice activities, and a glossary. Speech-language pathologists will find this book valuable for designing and implementing a phonological approach.
