Kathy J. Jakielski

Ph.D., CCC-SLP

Kathy J. Jakielski, Ph.D., CCC-SLP is the Florence C. and Dr. John E. Wertz Professor in Liberal Arts and Sciences at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois. She serves as Chair of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders where she has taught, mentored, and supervised undergraduate students in the classroom, research lab, and clinic for 18 years. Dr. Jakielski has over 30 years of clinical experience working with children, adolescents, and young adults with severe speech sound disorder (SSD), including childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). Her research focuses on genetic bases, differential diagnosis, and intervention efficacy of children with SSD-CAS. She enjoys the challenge of thinking phonetically about severe SSD, and recently published a phonetics-based intervention for children with CAS and is co-authoring a textbook on phonetic science for clinical use. After dreaming most nights about phonetic symbols, teaching the next generation of speech-language pathologists and thinking about CAS is what gets her out of bed in the morning.

Foundations for Clinical Practice: Phonetic Transcription

Presented by Kathy J. Jakielski, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

Foundations for Clinical Practice: Phonetic Transcription

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Speech-language pathologists often find themselves needing to complete a careful phonetic transcription for a particular client with a speech sound disorder; however, SLPs are not always confident in their phonetic skills and knowledge. This is the first course in a three-course series developed to increase your knowledge and skills in areas of clinical practice that are the foundation of effective diagnosis and treatment of individuals with speech sound disorders. In this first course, we will review and apply the basic skills of phonetics, including practicing precursory skills, classifying consonants and vowels, marking suprasegmentals and diacritics, and transcribing typical speech. We also will view a videotape of a teen with childhood apraxia of speech and phonetically transcribe his speech using phonetic symbols and diacritics. If your skills are rusty, then this course will serve to refresh transcription skills, as well as build new knowledge so that you can think phonetically.

Foundations for Clinical Practice: Analyzing the Speech System

This is the second course in a three-course series designed to increase your clinical knowledge and skills in evaluating and treating individuals with speech sound disorders. In this course, you will learn how to analyze a phonetically transcribed speech sample to evaluate the individual's segmental and suprasegmental skills. Speech-language pathologists frequently complete a thorough analysis of an individual's speech errors and error patterns, while paying little attention, if any at all, to the individual's phonetic and suprasegmental inventories--information that often is needed for differential diagnosis and goal setting. We will phonetically transcribe a brief speech sample from a teen with severe speech sound disorder characterized as childhood apraxia of speech, and then analyze his speech to derive his phonetic, error, and suprasegmental inventories. We then will use this information to develop goals for this young man that address all three components of the speech system. We also will apply our knowledge of the three components of the speech system to develop additional goals that we could use with other individuals with speech sound disorders.

Foundations for Clinical Practice: Vocal-to-Verbal Development

Presented by Kathy J. Jakielski, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

Foundations for Clinical Practice: Vocal-to-Verbal Development

This is the third course in a three-course series designed to increase your clinical knowledge and skills in evaluating and treating individuals with speech sound disorders. Unlike the first two courses, this course is specifically geared towards speech-language pathologists working with children. As speech-language pathologists, we can find ourselves having to make a difficult differential diagnosis and/or developing goals for a child with a severe speech sound disorder. Having early vocal and verbal histories on the child can help significantly in the decision-making process. In this course, you will learn how to identify early vocalizations and verbalizations by following a young child in the first year of her life. You will learn how to use this early information for diagnostic and intervention purposes when working with high-risk infants, as well as with older children.

Developing Speech Goals and Stimuli Based on Articulatory Complexity

Presented by Kathy J. Jakielski, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

Developing Speech Goals and Stimuli Based on Articulatory Complexity

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

There are multiple types of speech stimuli that speech-language pathologists can use when working with children with severe speech sound disorder. Stimuli can include speech gestures, syllables, target sounds in words, target sounds in nonsense words, modified words, phrases and sentences. There are advantages and disadvantages of each type of stimuli, and no one type is right for every situation. In this practical course, a new approach for developing word- and phrase-level articulation goals and target stimuli using phonetics-based principles will be explained. Eight hierarchically-ordered speech patterns will be presented, and videotapes of the patterns being used in intervention will be shown. Examples of goals and stimuli for each pattern also will be provided.
