SLP's Get Certification in LiPS Program

November 14, 2017

Pediatric Therapy Partners Speech- Language Pathologists Brianna Jallo and Krista Murray, and Pediatric Partners Neurobehavioral Health Speech-Language Pathologists Danielle Olson and Ashley Hovde earned their certification in the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program(LiPS). This knowledge can go on to help clients who have impairments in phonemic awareness; this also helps our therapists understand reading and writing for phonemic awareness. Phonemic awareness, the ability to judge speech sounds within words, underlies decoding and spelling. In this course, Jallo, Murray, Olson and Hovde learned how speech sounds are articulated and will use this knowledge to identify and sequence sounds within single syllables.
