Treatment of developmental speech sound disorders requires that the speech-language pathologist identify the source of the problem and then design an effective treatment program. Computer software can help with this process, but one must ask whether there is research evidence that the tools chosen are effective and/or that they can be effectively and efficiently applied with a given client in a particular clinical setting. This article will examine some of the available software with these questions in mind.
The applications chosen were consistent with the theoretical perspective articulated by Rvachew and Jamieson (1995) . We proposed that all speech sound errors have the same proximal causes, either (a) a mismatch between the standard underlying representation (UR) for a given phoneme contrast and the learner’s UR for that same phoneme contrast, and/or (b) a mismatch between the learner’s UR and the learner’s surface form.
