International Phonetic Alphabet Review

February 12, 2020

Special Education

The International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) is a notation system for the sounds of oral language. The correct use of the IPA system is required in assessing students with speech sound disorders with formalized assessment tools. The system also involves the transfer of sound descriptions between providers and use in the analysis of the student’s sound system. We will also discuss the phonemes in the American English Standard and Spanish dialects. This course is intended to be a refresher only.
