Consulting the Evidence to Provide Treatment for a Preschooler with Moderate-to-Severe Speech Disorders Who Has Not Responded Well to Previous Treatment

Most school-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) who work with preschool children will provide treatment for moderate to severe phonological impairments (Shewan, 1988). These children require more of our direct services than children with milder problems. We want to see reasonable progress in our more involved clients in the shortest amount of time possible. Using practices that have been shown to be effective is one way to make efficient use of our time and bring about reasonable gains in our clients.
