COURSE DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVES:
Advanced study of speech-sound disorders (SSD) in children will be discussed including functional articulation disorders,
phonological processing disorders, cleft palate, developmental apraxia, and problems in research. The course includes development,
assessment, and treatment. The primary goal is to acquire the knowledge base of the area including the underlying explanations, as
well as the assessment and treatment literature, and sufficient critical thinking skills so that students, with practice, can provide
appropriate assessment and treatment. Through exercises and activities with case-based examples, students will be asked to
prescribe appropriate assessment protocols and treatment goals/procedures and provide a rationale for each.
The class will use a variety of teaching methods including lecture/discussion, practice exercises, individual and group problem solving
exercise, and student presentation/discussions. Students are expected to take an active role during the class (presenting information, acting as
discussion leader, and communicating higher level thinking and comprehension skills (application, analysis, synthesis, evaluation).

LEARNING OUTCOMES
Link to American Speech, Language, and Hearing Association (ASHA) Knowledge and Skills Acquisition (KASA):
http://www.asha.org/uploadedFiles/certification/KASASummaryFormSLP.pdf
The ASHA KASA document details the Standards for the Certificate of Clinical Competence for Speech Pathologists (CCCSLP). This document is utilized to demonstrate compliance with accreditation standards related to preparing students to meet
ASHA certification requirements.
It includes nine main knowledge areas (articulation, fluency, voice and resonance, receptive/expressive language, hearing,
swallowing, cognitive aspects, social aspects, and communication modalities) across five clinical parameters (etiology,
characteristics, prevention, assessment, and intervention).
Because of the importance of the KASA standards in tracking and documenting the student’s achievement related to these
knowledge areas and clinical parameters, they are directly related to the Learning Outcomes.
Accordingly, the relevant Standards for this course are noted for each Learning Outcome.
1. To develop knowledge regarding the etiologies, characteristics, prevention, assessment and intervention of articulation and
phonological disorders in children. (III-B, C, D)
2. To develop knowledge of development, philosophical issues, theoretical models, research based diagnostic and intervention
procedures in phonological and articulation disorders. (III-B, C, D)
3. To develop knowledge of atypical speech development (classification of subtypes/phenotypes, differential diagnosis, etiology,
explanation) (III C)
4. To design/rationalize an assessment protocol of norm referenced and/or criterion referenced assessment instruments/procedures, given
case scenarios (III-D)
5. To obtain knowledge concerning evidence-based practices in diagnosis and intervention with phonological and articulation disorders
in children throughout their developmental progression (pre-linguistic, emerging, developing language/phonology, school age,
adolescent). (III-D)
6. To acquire knowledge and clinical skills in evidence-based diagnosis and evaluation of children and adolescents from differing
cultural backgrounds as well as the ability to To analyze disordered speech using appropriate assessment frameworks (III-D)
7. To identify/rationalize intervention techniques/approaches for a variety of types/ages of SSD (III-D)
8. To acquire the knowledge to design treatment plan for individuals with specific phonological disorders with treatment procedures
identified and explained for a variety of types/ages of SSD (III-D)
9. To compare/contrast various models of intervention according to underlying theory, initial targets, procedures,
effectiveness/efficacy data (III-D, IIIF)

Advanced Phonology and Articulation Disorders
2011 Fall
The overall goal of this course is to improve your knowledge and clinical skills in the area of articulation and phonological disorders.
1. Standard III-B: Knowledge of basic human communicating processes including their biological, neurological, acoustic, psychological,
developmental, and linguistic and cultural bases.
2. Standard III-C Knowledge of the nature [of articulation/phonological disorders in children] including the etiologies, characteristics,
anatomical/ physiological, acoustic, psychological, developmental, and linguistic and cultural correlates; cognitive aspects; social aspects.
3. Standard III-D: Knowledge of the principles and methods of prevention, assessment, and intervention children with articulation/phonological
disorders]
4. Standard III-F: Knowledge of processes used in research and the integration of research principles into evidence-based clinical practice
STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
If you have any special learning needs, please see me during the first week of class so we can be sure you get the proper
accommodations. However, before seeing me you must first register with the Office of Access and Learning Accommodation (OALA)
(http://www.baylor.edu/oala). OALA: 254-710-3605
Baylor Blackboard:
Syllabus, lecture notes, handouts, special announcements, and other class material will be posted on the Blackboard. The student
should become familiar with the BB as quickly as possible. Inability to retrieve course information will not be an acceptable excuse
for failure to acquire/master the information. If you are registered for the class then you are automatically linked to the course. You
will need to check the course site at least once daily.
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY
Students in this course are expected to firmly abide by the Baylor University Student Honor Code as outlined in the Student
Handbook. Students who violate the Honor Code will suffer the consequences:
Any evidence of dishonorable conduct (i.e., cheating in and out of the class for class activities such as exams and
projects) as outlined in the Baylor Honor Code will result in at least an "F" in this course
(http://www.baylor.edu/honorcode/index.php?id=44060).
All Honor Code violations will be reported to Baylor University’s Office of Academic Integrity right away throughout
the semester and will follow the student through their entire time at the university. Please guard your ethical
reputation beginning now. All books/notes/electronic devices must be out of sight during exams. All hats/caps must be
removed.

Attendance Policy:
CSD Major – Attendance Policy: The attendance policy of the College of Arts & Sciences states: “To earn course credit in the
College of Arts and Sciences, a student must attend at least 75% of all scheduled class meetings. Any student who does not meet this
minimal standard will automatically receive a grade of ‘F’ in the course.” As a CSD Major, you are basically expected to attend all
classes. In the event you are unable to attend a class session, it is your responsibility to obtain (a) class notes and/or handouts from
another student, and (b) any changes in the class schedule. You are also expected to take tests on time. If you are ill, it is your
responsibility to notify the instructor prior to the time of the test. If you miss a test without prior approval from your instructor, you
