What is it about?

Lateralization speech sound errors often persist and are difficult to treat, This research describes speech-language pathologists beliefs about the causes and treatment of lateralization errors. Specific challenges to treatment are described which imply a need for lateralization research to consider the real-world treatment difficulties clinicians face when treating lateralization errors.

Why is it important?

Better understanding of beliefs about current practices and challenges when treating lateralization speech sound errors can potentially lead to improved evidence based practices for this disorder.


This article has five student authors, which I hope shows current speech-language pathology students that research and publication is not only for established researchers. Students are the future of our profession. Reading and supporting their research work makes the profession stronger.
