Children usually say their first words by 12 months, producing two word sentences by two years. Identification and intervention for a speech disorder, however, is unlikely before three years of age, except in cases of hearing impairment or pervasive developmental disability. The reasons most often cited for not treating children before three years of age are: It is not possible to identify children with speech disorder reliably before three years; and they do not have the attention span or cognitive abilities to benefit from therapy. Another issue concerns choice of an appropriate intervention goal: what would happen in therapy?
The first part of the workshop will consider whether it is possible to reliably assess toddlers, and whether intervention might be worthwhile. This section will describe
• The Toddler Phonology Test: A reliable and valid method for assessing 24-35 month olds’ phonological development, presenting normative data for English speaking children collected in the UK and Australia. What are the speech characteristics of typical two-year-olds?
• A predictive validity study: follow-up data, collected 12 months after the children (N=36) had done the TPT, on the Diagnostic Evaluation of Articulation and Phonology.
• Implications for intervention: Discussion in small groups to identify possible therapy goals (one per group).

The second part of the workshop considers interventions that might benefit two-year-olds at risk of speech disorder. A review of the published research will include detail of how to implement ‘rule therapy’ and ‘core vocabulary therapy’.
Small group discussion will then consider planning of clinical management for a choice of cases. Participants will consider the following for their chosen case from given examples:

• What would be the aim of therapy?
• What would be the target of therapy?
• What type of intervention techniques might be used?
• What would be the best way of delivering the intervention?
• How might the intervention be evaluated?
