Speech-Sound Disorders in Early Childhood: Early Indicators and Interventions

The Haskins Training Institute at Haskins Laboratories will be holding a day-long seminar for clinicians, educators, parents, and scientists entitled 'Speech-Sound Disorders in Early Childhood: Early Indicators and Interventions'. This conference will focus on current research which studies the causes, assessments, and treatments for speech-sound disorders in children. Topics will include speech perception and production in preschool and young school-age children with articulation/phonological disorders, childhood apraxia of speech, and autism. Five world-class speakers will discuss identification and treatment strategies, with added theoretical emphasis on the underlying nature of these disorders.
