A great new resource for those practicing or teaching courses in phonetics, articulation disorders, diagnostics, or clinic practicum, this DVD features carefully selected, completed case studies of children with articulation/phonological disorders that help in the practical application of phonetic transcription, learning of assessment procedures, and development of therapy goals/plans.This video representation of clients enables students to assess and observe the various behaviors crucially including nonverbal communication behavior to facilitate a thorough assessment of the client's communication skills rather than just an audio-recorded speech sample. It also fills the gap in the limited exposure students receive in using phonetics before entering their graduate program in communication sciences and disorders, since undergraduate or pre-requisite courses in phonetics introduce the basic skills in the transcription of normal speech, but generally fail to cover disordered speech. Furthermore, the DVD demonstrably saves supervisors time, so that they do not have to spend valuable working hours teaching the clinical practicum skills that a graduate is expected to know.Unique in that it is the only product to use multiple case studies to show both the evaluation and intervention aspects in speech-language pathology, this DVD commences with a review of phonetics, illustrating the IPA; aspects of normal articulation and phonological development; and a review of different types of assessment measurements and analyses. Thereafter, a range of illustrative, video-based case studies include information about the child's background (medical, social, psychological, and educational), an administered standardized measure, speech sample, results of these evaluation measures, and suggested treatment goals for each child. Students can also practice their transcription skills with immediate feedback so that they can compare their answers with the sample transcription. Visual stimuli are shown simultaneously as the child is speaking, helping the user to know and understand the context, which is critical when analyzing a child's speech.Whether student, instructor, beginning or experienced speech-language pathologist, this DVD will prove an invaluable education and self-assessment resource.
