Research Design: Single Case Design

The focus here is a detailed case description of a broad-based model for treat ing developmental phonological disorders. Successful treatment comprising 27 consultations over 17 months, of a girl aged 4;4 at the outset, with a moderate phonological disability, is examined in detail. The model’s strength is in its combination of family education, metalinguistic tasks, phonetic production procedures, multiple exemplar techniques and homework. Treatment is administered in planned alternating therapy blocks and breaks from therapy attendance.
