Event description
Dr Anne Harding-Bell presents on a psycholinguistic approach to categorising and treating articulation (phonetic disorders) from childhood.

About this Event

Workshop Overview

Dr Anne Harding-Bell presents on a psycholinguistic approach to categorising and treating articulation (phonetic disorders) from childhood through to adulthood. Typical examples include lateral /s/, including lateral fricatives, dental /s/, gliding of /r l/ and gliding of /s z /, backing alveolars, active nasal fricatives and syllabic nasals.

Have you ever ‘hit a wall’ with a client and felt like you have tried everything to elicit the target sound?? The Psycholinguistic approach explains why some of the resources and cues we use in therapy may elicit ‘old’ or incorrect realisations. The aim of the course is to revisit a model we are all familiar with as SLTs, but apply this to our management of phonetic disorders. By the end of the course you will have a framework to help your clients create new representations, new motor plans and elicit target sounds in therapy.

This course is accessible for all grades of SLTs. To enable attendees to work effectively we have limited the course to 40 spaces. Book now to secure your place!

• Theory: Terminology review

• Categorising children’s speech difficulties. Phonological or phonetic?

• The Psycholinguistic model and it’s use in treating phonetic disorders

• Therapy planning, cueing and progression: Case discussions and practical advice

• Attendee case studies: Group Troubleshooting. (please send information in advance of session so material can be prepared in advance of the session)

About Dr Anne Harding-Bell

I worked in a range of clinical contexts before specialising in cleft palate in 1985. I completed my PhD with Professor Pam Grunwell at De Montfort University in 1993 while working clinically with Dr Debbie Sell at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children. We developed the GOS.SP.ASS speech assessment for cleft palate speech before I moved on to develop the specialist cleft palate speech and language therapy service based in Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge. In 2001 I developed and led the first post-graduate studies course in cleft palate speech in Cambridge. I subsequently joined the Department of Human Communication Sciences to contribute to the development of the Cleft Palate Studies programme in 2005. I have retired from my clinical post Cambridge but continue to lead the Post-Graduate Certificate in Cleft Palate Speech component of the Post Graduate Studies programme.

Research interests

  • Nature of cleft palate speech with particular reference to developing speech
  • Interceptive infant intervention with children born with cleft palate
  • Methods for evaluating and reporting speech outcomes
  • impact of conductive hearing on developing speech in the cleft palate population
  • Videotherapy as a support to face to face intervention for speech difficulties
