Best practice assessment of children with speech sound disorder: how can individualised assessment probes affect intervention target selection?
This project aims to investigate the impact of recommended ‘best practice’ assessment for speech sound disorder on the targets that are selected by speech and language therapists for intervention. Children with speech sound difficulties aged 4 to 9 years and their families will be invited to take part in two assessment sessions, either face to face in the University speech and language therapy clinic or remotely using video-calls.
Database of developmental speech and language disorder profiles
The aim is of this project is to explore how children with speech and language problems in childhood have different clinical profiles and how they respond to speech and language therapy. Families who attend the University of Reading paediatric speech and language therapy clinic will be invited to take part in the project. Participation involves completing some parental questionnaires and speech and language assessments.
