Project Description

This corpus contains data from around 30 English-speaking children with speech sound disorders between the ages of 3 and 7 years, recorded in a clinical setting. Each child has at least two recordings, one pre-treatment and one post-treatment, and many have more files, some of which are shorter baseline and intermediary probes that we administered throughout treatment. The speech probe used is the Assessment of English Phonology, designed in 2003 by Jessica Barlowe at San Diego State University. It is a 256-word probe, administered with PowerPoint. All utterances are single-word utterances.
