CMDS 477 - Articulation and Phonology


This course serves as a foundation for assessing and treating articulation and phonology. This course aims to provide students with a scientific understanding of the nature of both phonological and articulatory disorders as well as assist them in applying this knowledge to clinical situations. The first section of the course reviews phonetic transcription, normal aspects of articulatory and phonological development, and theories of phonological development. The second section of the course focuses on identification of articulation and phonological disorders, and how to interpret assessment findings. The third section focuses on intervention approaches and facilitative strategies. All sections emphasize developmentally appropriate practice. Additional topics include multicultural issues and articulatory deficits related to specific populations (hearing impairment, dysarthia, cleft palate, apraxia, tongue thrust, etc.). This course is elective for students choosing the non-clinical major Capstone option and required for students intending to take CMDS 480 - Clinical Practice .
