Treatment trial in which clinician presents antecedent stimuli; client is instructed to produce the sound or clinician immediately models the correct response. Then clicinician gives appropriate consequence and records accuracy. *some sounds not able to produce in this way...
Sound in Isolation level
This is the simplest response level for sounds that cannot be produced in isolation... can use vowel diagram to present target sound.
Sound in Syllable level
Treatment trial that uses carrier phrases..
Sound in word, phrase and sentence levels
In this trial the clinician presents a picture or object in front of the client then demonstrates the action or event that reps the sound in a word, asks a relevent predeterm'd question or immediatly models the correct response. Clinician then waits for client to respond following with a consequence then records response.
Sound in word, phrase and sentence levels
In this trial clinician asks open-ended questions to evoke free flow of speech. Clinician will continue to provide feedback appropriate to response, client needs to be able to self-monitor.

Treatment of childhood apraxia of speech
- Treat movement patterns and sound sequences
- Begin with early developing, visible, highly contrasted and easily distinguishable
- Begin with what is meaningful to child
- Begin in intial position, in order of phonetic complexity
- Take breaks or cue client to take them
- Teach slower movements
- Automatic before spontaneous
Why is it important to focus on meaningful words when treating CAS?
Child needs to learn words they are likely to use.

Need to give articulators time to get into place
What are some specific tx approaches?

shaping- lightly bite lower lip to begin /f/

to train correct prosody
Medical treatments for dysarthria in children
- Laryngeoplasty: paralyzed voal fold is moved with impland to promote phonation and better voice quality
- Teflon/collagen injections and recurrent laryngeal nerve resection
- Botox injections: spasmodic dysphonia
- Palatal lift: Prothetic device attatches to teeth and posterior portion extends to life soft palate improving resonance
Treatment principles of dys in children
- Teach appropriate prosody (pacing board, delayed auditory feedback)
- Improve intell with slower rate (pacing)
- Use of non-verbal comm if necessary
- Compensatory movements (buccal air)
- Exercises (controversial but may strength)
- Work with family (involvoe who they comm witht he most)
Treatment of CP
- Muscle strenghthening/assistive devices
- direct treatment: phonetic placement
- Increase the speech of articulatory movemtents
- Work with repiratory: sustaining airflow, breath for SP and breath for life
- Prosody (same as dysarth)
- May need augmen system
Medical treatments of Cleft palate
- Pharyngeal flap surgery: secondary procedure for hypernasality
- Fistulae repair: opening that is closed after remains open from cleft patate repair
- Speech bulb: for hypernasality, palatal retainer helps with velppharyngeal closure
Treatment of Cleft palate
- Treat visible sounds first
- Begin with vowels, move to semivowels, nasals, glides, fricatives, lingua-pals, lingua-alveols, and ling-dents
- Postpone /k/ and /g/
- Strengthen velum
- Correct airflow (after surgery may still use hypernasal airflow)
- Reduce faical grimace
- Compensatory articulation (use /h/ to produce buccal when need oral air)
- Treat proper resonance
- Reduce voal abusive behaviors
How do you work on resonance of cleft palate?
Teach oral air instead of nasal
Key apects of treatment of hearing impaired.
- Begin EARLY
- Involve family
- Use visual,tactile and kinesthetic cues
- Begin with stops-frics-affrics (because of little visual info)
- Treat initial and final consonant deletion (particularly in voiceless)
- Vowels difficult (no visual cues)
- Vocal quality (charac of deaf sp, hypo/er-nasal culdasac resonance.
