FNSL-162 - Articulation and Phonology - 3.00 Credits

Course Details
This course provides students with essential background knowledge and an introduction to methodologies of providing treatment for children with articulation and phonological differences. Basic anatomy and physiology of the speech mechanism, understanding of the subsystems involved in speech production and normal developmental milestones will be linked to understanding the process of typical speech sound development of both English and First Nation dialects. Activities and strategies reflective of various treatment approaches will also be discussed. The role of the speech language assistant in implementing program recommendations will be emphasized throughout.

    Learning Outcomes:

    Upon successful completion of this course students should be able to:

    • demonstrate an understanding of the basic anatomy and physiology involved in speech production;

    • describe how English consonant and vowel sounds are articulated (i.e., place and manner of articulation);

    • describe typical developmental milestones and the impact of multiple language learning on speech sound development;

    • demonstrate an ability to conduct a screening protocol of speech sounds based on a standardized tool or an informal speech sample;

    • explain how speech sound differences have an impact on academic performance, social interaction and daily activities;

    • demonstrate an understanding of the difference between articulation and a phonological approach to treatment and be able to use different approaches to provide appropriate intervention;

    • demonstrate use a variety of sound elicitation techniques; and

    • describe how phonological development relates to literacy development and demonstrate understanding of how to target phonological awareness skills in intervention.
