Abstract

A response evocation program, some principles underlying its development and administration, and a review of some clinical experiences with the program are presented. Sixty-five children with developmental articulation errors of the /retroflex/ phoneme were administered the program by one of 19 clinicians. Approximately 70 percent of program administrations resulted in a child emitting a good /retroflex/ within six minutes. Approximately 10 percent of children who were given additional training on program step failures emitted good /retroflex/'s in subsequent sessions. These preliminary observations are discussed in relation to the role of task analysis and motor skills learning principles in response evocation, clinician influences in program outcomes, and professional issues in service delivery to children with developmental articulation errors.
