Author information

Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology, West Virginia University, Morgantown 26506-6122, USA.


Some individuals are unable to achieve correct production of the /r/ phoneme after receiving substantial amounts of treatment. Clark, Schwarz, and Blakeley (1993) developed a removable speech appliance that positions the tongue to produce the /r/ phoneme. Their results indicate that the appliance was successful with a large group of clients. The rationale and issues related to the use of speech appliances are discussed.
