Phonological principles and procedures provide a framework for identifying broad deviation patterns and for expediting intelligibility gains. The number of clinicians currently incorporating phonological research findings in their assessment and remediation procedures, however, is rather small. In this article, possible factors that may have deterred clinicians from employing phonological constructs are explored, and phonological assessment and remediation issues, principles, and practices are discussed. In addition, underlying concepts and target patterns that have helped expedite intelligibility gains are explained.
