This session will present a whole word metric for the evaluation of phonological accuracy and progress monitoring in multisyllabic words. Participants will have hands-on training and practice in a streamlined software application, i.e. Phon (Hedlund & Rose, 2018), for transcription and analysis of multisyllabic word productions. The presentation will summarize current research using the metric for a sample of mono-English and French-speaking preschoolers and school-aged children, with and without speech sound disorder/protracted phonological development. Finally, it will describe research that is underway with the aim to acquire sufficient normative data for a representative sample of mono- and multisyllabic words.
