Abstract

The paper Intervention for a Child with Persisting Speech and Literacy Difficulties: A Psycholinguistic Approach Joy Stackhouse, Michelle Pascoe, and Hilary Gardner illustrates a psycholinguistic approach to investigating childhood speech and literacy difficulties. A psycholinguistic approach claims that that speech and literacy development is the product of an intact speech processing system composed of speech input processing, stored word representations, and speech output processing.

The study examined the relationship among measures (PCC(percentage consonants correct), sound inventory, and word shapes) used in assessing the connected speech samples of children ages 3-7 years old who have difficulty learning speech sounds. Speech-language therapists routinely utilize connected speech samples as part of their assessment and diagnostic process, because they provide an accurate representation of a child’s natural speech patterns. Furthermore, connected speech samples Relationships among the results of PCC, sound inventory, and word shapes and client variables will be explored.
