IASLT are delighted to bring you this opportunity to attend ONE OR TWO DAYS of this SuSSD CPD Event. This course is supported by funding from the National HSCP Office and priority is for those in Publicly Funded Health Care Settings.
Dr Jill Titterington of Ulster University and her PhD student, Natalie Hegarty have developed an excellent resource, Supporting and Understanding Speech Sound Disorder (SuSSD), for supporting SLTs in making clinical decisions about the appropriateness of intervention approaches for children with phonological impairment (minimal pairs etc)
Jill Titterington has over 20 years of clinical experience (mostly as a specialist for children with hearinɡ impairment) and over 16 years of academic experience as a lecturer in Ulster University’s Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) department. She has just moved into an independent role as Consultant Speech and Language Therapist/Researcher. Jill is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and her lecturing experience has mostly focused on covering phonetics for Speech and Language Therapists and clinical management of speech sound disorders in children. She is currently a member of the UK and Ireland’s Child Speech Disorder Research Network and has previously been part of the UK’s Clinical Phonetics Teaching Network. Jill’s research focuses on supporting implementation of evidence to clinical practice for young children with speech and language difficulties (with a particular focus on speech sound disorder (SSD)). Recent publications include co-authored chapters on: the pedagogy of clinical phonetics for students of SLT in Martin Ball’s Manual of Clinical Linguistics, and the nature and acquisition of Irish English speech for Sharynne McLeod’s The Oxford handbook of speech development in languages of the world. Recent journal articles have focused on application of evidence on dosage to practice for children with severe SSD.
