 Susan Haseley, MS, CCC-SLP
This course will focus on the impact that Tactile Therapy can make on the R sound, often resulting in cutting the time required for therapy by half or more. We will discuss the necessary movements to make the R sound and how tactile therapy devices can help provide sensory information for the student. We will discuss the scientific journal articles that help substantiate the use of tactile devices.

By the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

1. Determine the motor errors that children with disordered R sounds make.

2. Determine the necessary adjustments in order for those same children to produce an acoustically correct R sound.

3. Review tactile therapy devices and the purpose of the devices in order for the participants to become informed consumers of tactile therapy devices.
