Understanding of Misarticulated Words in Children with Speech Errors

Understanding of Misarticulated Words in Children with Speech Errors

Children learn new words and speech sounds through hearing others speak. People speak with a variety of accents and dialects, and children often mispronounce their words. The purpose of the present research is to explore how variability impacts children's word learning--particularly when children produce speech errors themselves.

We are seeking children ages 4-5 who have speech errors for one to two 30-60 minute sessions. In this study, we will assess speech and language and then your child will participate in a computer task using a computer touchscreen or mouse. In this task, your child will hear some words--some misarticulated, some correct, and some new words. You child will be asked to click on the picture that matches what they heard. This study can be completed via Zoom technology!
