Active Comparator: Motoric Arm
Children will participate in an intervention based on traditional articulation approaches to speech therapy.
Behavioral: articulation therapy
children receive instruction in producing new sounds at the isolation, syllable and word level.
Active Comparator: Phonologic Arm
Children will receive intervention that targets the conceptual representation of sounds.
Behavioral: phonologic treatment
children receive instruction in producing new sounds at the word level
- Treatment Efficacy: Number of correct productions of treated speech sounds in treatment words [ Time Frame: baseline until accuracy criterion is met; up to 18 weeks after final baseline session ]Accurate Production of treatment sound at baseline and at posttest
- Treatment Efficiency: Number of sessions required to meet accuracy criteria [ Time Frame: baseline until accuracy criterion is met; up to 18 weeks after final baseline session ]Number of treatment sessions required to meet accuracy criteria (90% accuracy across three consecutive sessions or a maximum of 35 treatment sessions)
- Session Length: Mean duration of sessions in minutes [ Time Frame: First treatment session until final treatment session. Final treatment session occurs when accuracy of treatment sound is met (90% accuracy across three consecutive sessions or a maximum of 35 treatment sessions) ]Start and end time of session is recorded on scoresheet, then number of minutes for each session for each participant is found and the mean across all sessions is calculated.
- Accuracy of production of untreated sounds measured on pretest and posttest probes [ Time Frame: baseline and at posttest up to 18 weeks after final baseline session ]Some children may generalize their skills learned through treatment to sounds that were not treated in the trial.
