Intelligibility Norms and Special Education Predictions

January 11, 2022

Matt, Michelle, and Michael dive into the research and pop news in and related to the field of Speech and Language Pathology and the Informed SLP breaks down the latest research.    Due to technical difficulties, the audio on this episode has been repaired and some parts had to be cut due to audio troubles.   On this week’s episode, they look at 2 key predictions for the realm of special education on the other side of the pandemic and why what we think of intelligibility norms may be way off.  The Informed SLP tackles Dysarthria Severity.   PresenceLearning has also teamed up with Speech Science for a brand new giveaway!
