R: Techniques and Interventions To Correct /r/ — Seven Steps, From Basics To Habituation

# e172   R: Techniques and Interventions To Correct /r/ — Seven Steps, From Basics To Habituation

by Sandra Holtzman, M.S., CCC-SLP, C.O.M.

0.15 CEUs

$ 34.00

The /r/ sound is one of the most difficult sounds for a clinician to target.  Where do we start? The R that initiates a syllable is very different from the R that is vowelized, and the R that is stressed within a word is different from the unstressed R at the end of words...or are they? Covered will be seven basic steps that are necessary to move clients onward toward habituation.

Participants will learn the secrets of taking the correct steps in the correct order. You will no longer be left in limbo, unsure whether to begin with the initial sound in isolation, or in the final position, or with clusters....or whether to simply pull your hair out in frustration!

Certain structural and functional complications that interfere with the treatment process are described and ruled out. Basic lingual skills necessary for success are introduced early in the treatment program. Participants will progress—much as their clients will—through small, critical steps along a smooth and sensible pathway leading to the final goal of habituation. Offered for 0.15 ASHA CEUs – 1.5 contact hours.

Content Disclosure: While the content of this online CE course does not focus exclusively on any specific proprietary product or service, the methods in this course are derived from the text, Orofacial Myology: From Basics to Habituation. Course author, Sandra Holtzman, is the author of this text and receives royalties on its sale. Additional financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab.

Please Note: This online CE course is an updated version of a previously offered eCourse - #e54. While some of the content material may be the same, this course is considered a different offering with ASHA.

Course Format: Video PowerPoint presentation with author narration & downloadable handout.

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Rule out various etiologies prior to initiating a program of /r/ therapy.
  2. Understand the basic lingual skills to be maximized before initiating a program of articulation.
  3. Name and describe the seven stages of therapy from "basics to habituation."
  4. Give at least two examples of methods to obtain a pure, stable and consistent ER in isolation.
  5. Explain the benefits of presenting ER in the final position of words instead of the initial position.

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post test in order to 
receive a certificate of completion.

Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses.

"It was all well presented and applicable to my daily therapy. I liked its simplicity and to the point delivery." – J.M. (Mar. 2017)

"I thought it was most helpful when she explained why she started with the ER sound. It made me think differently about how to approach therapy with my clients in the future who have difficulty with the R sound. I liked that the course had set steps to follow and provided a way to move through ways to achieve the R sound in therapy. It was individualized but at the same step could be applied to any client you are working with on the R sound." – J.E. (Mar. 2017)

"I appreciated how the hierarchy is organized and easy to follow. I liked the video examples." – I.D.L.R. (Mar. 2017)

"Very applicable to therapeutic practice. The slides and videos make it easy to follow along to. The course gave clear and well supported guidelines for use and to accomplish outcomes." – M.L. (Feb. 2017)

"This was one of the best CEU courses I have taken in regards to articulation. I can't wait to try using these steps with my students with /r/ errors." – M.L. (Jan. 2017)
