Articulation Treatment. The Baseline Phase. Step 1. Has your client already had a recent articulation evaluation or is s/he continuing in treatment from a previous quarter? Do you know what sounds are in error?
The Baseline Phase
If NO, then go to Step 2
If YES, then go to Step 3
Note: You may have to provide an example to the child of how to create the story – use other cards.
If, as you are analyzing your connected speech sample, you are hearing a pattern (e.g., /s/ is correct in all word final positions, but in error in all other positions), you must record and report that. That is a significant finding.
“I’m going to show you a card with a word on it. I want you to say the word for me. If you are not sure what the word is, I will tell you and then we’ll come back to it later to see if you remember it.”
Do NOT use your baseline word probe cards for treatment (unless there is a special circumstance).
Ask your supervisor!
