What are the two approaches for choosing treatment targets for children with articulation or phonological disorders. Describe each
- 1. developmental approach: Identify targets based on normal ages of acquisition os speech sounds, typically present error sounds in order that normal children learn sounds.
- 2. non-developmental approach: Client specific, degree of perceived deviance associated with child's errors, phonological

- Phonological (most unintellibillity, initial consonant deletion, gloattal replacement of medial consonants.)
Describe the verticle goal strategy
- Intense practive on limited number of targets
- Target /l/ first until mastered then move on to /r/
- good if client only has few errors
- traditional artic treatment
- Van Riper
- Isolation, syllables, words, sentences, conversation
Describe the horizontal goal strategy
- Simultaneous exposure to a wide variety of targets will facilitate a client's ability to produce phonemes or sound patterns
- Less intense practice to a large number of targets, even in same seesion.
- Appropriate for clients with multiple errors.
