Abstract

Several studies have shown that a subgroup of misarticulating children has significant difficulties with the phonemic perception of speech sounds (Broen, Strange, Doyle, & Heller, 1983; Rvachew & Jamieson, 1989). It has been suggested that some of these children employ subperceptual category boundaries in both the perception and production of their error sound contrasts (Hoffman, Daniloff Bengoa, & Schuckers, 1985). Subsequently, Chaney (1988) has recommended the use of perceptual training that focuses on the child's own misarticulations and teaches these children to identify standard phonemic categories. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of sound identification training in facilitating correct production of `sh' by phonologically delayed preschoolers
