Abstract/Description: The psycholinguistic model is a theoretical framework that details the speech processing system at various levels of input, storage, and output. In the case of a child with complex speech-language impairment, this study sought to determine if: (1) a psycholinguistic approach to assessment was effective in identifying the participant’s level(s) of speech and language deficit and (2) if intervention targeted to the identified level(s) of deficit was effective in treating the participant’s speech and language difficulties. First, a comprehensive battery of assessments was administered to identify the participant’s speech processing difficulties and relative strengths. Then, treatment was targeted to specific areas of deficit indicated by assessment. Results indicate that psycholinguistic assessment was effective in identifying the participant’s levels of breakdown in speech processing. Treatment results were variable, although considerable gains were made on primary objectives such as phonological awareness, reading and spelling, and speech production. Overall, findings suggest that a psycholinguistic approach may be appropriate for some children with complex speech-language impairment, although rapid gains may not be seen in each targeted area.
