Presenter: Char Boshart, MA CCC-SLP
Although considered by some as "simple" articulation errors, frontal and lateral sibilants can certainly pose a remediation challenge, even for the best SLP. Just how do you get the tongue back, encourage it to remain in place, and generate complete carryover? Some kids seem to move into placement and generalization fairly easily, but others don't. Just why is that?

Char's comprehensive 3-hour online video course Systematic Frontal & Lateral "S" Remediation" provides practical answers to these concerns as well as many other troublesome "how to" therapy questions.      
You'll learn practical, systematic techniques to help you quickly and easily:

  • Apply personalized and effective methods for children with frontal and lateral speech sounds.
  • Maximize your time, effort, and expertise to achieve results and reduce your caseload.
  • Formulate personalized start-to-finish therapy sequences.
  • Reach ALL elementary, middle, and high school children, and
  • Overcome even the tough and challenging cases.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Analyze /s/ from a physiological perspective.
  • Sequential capability-based tasks that incorporate all of the /s/ production elements.
  • Describe how to effectively establish, solidify, and generalize a correct /s/.
  • List the three phases of changing oral resting postures, a critical key to carryover.
