Speech Motor Chaining is an evidence-based motor learning treatment for speech sound disorders. Our past research has shown that children who have shown little progress following traditional treatment can improve their speech sounds with motor learning treatment. In this study, we are researching if a computerized version of Speech Motor Chaining that uses speech recognition can be used to help children who are stimulable for “r” learn to produce “r” more consistently.

We have finished recruiting for our winter sessions but will have more slots available for sessions in early 2024. Check this page for updates.
