Frontal Lisp, Lateral Lisp, Distorted R
The frontal lisp, lateral lisp, and distorted R are considered mild articulation errors, yet they can be difficult to remediate in some clients. This seminar presents practical therapy techniques for the remediation of all the sibilants and R. Techniques are drawn from the rich history of traditional articulation therapy updated with the newest information we have about tongue movement from electropalatography, film, and MRI studies. A wide variety of techniques will be discussed. Class includes lecture, examples, and small group learning activities. Techniques are pre-sented in light of the evidence-based practice model. Ample time for questions and com-ments is included throughout the day. This class is intermediate/advanced and beneficial for new therapists and seasoned professionals.

Developing Carryover in Articulation Therapy
This program presents a wide variety of ways to encourage carryover of new articulation and phonological skills. It focuses on clients who can produce their sounds correctly in the therapy room but who are not making changes outside the therapy room. Material is based on literature review, ideas from historic and modern textbooks on articulation and phonol-ogy, Pam's three decades of clinical experi-ence, and ideas from hundreds of professional speech-language pathologists practicing nation-wide. The seminar contains lecture, examples, questions-answers, and small group learning/sharing activities. Questions and comments will be welcome throughout the program. Methods are presented in light of the evidence-based practice model.
