Speedy Speech emerged from a dilemma that may sound familiar to many speech-language pathologists. How can we meet the needs of students whose speech and/or language delays have an adverse effect on education and at the same time provide services to students with mild articulation errors? A suburban school-district near Chicago, IL, has addressed this issue. In October 2005, a new program was developed for elementary school students who did not qualify for speech/ language services, but whose spontaneous speech contained sound errors that were no longer developmentally appropriate. Although the children produced articulation errors, there was no evidence of adverse educational effect. Some of the students with articulation errors, or their parents and teachers, expressed an interest in remediation to avoid possible adverse effects in the future.
