A retrospective design was used to compare the relative efficacy of traditional and phonological approaches in the treatment of children with multiple articulation disorders. Nineteen children received evaluation and therapy based on a traditional paradigm and 17 children received phonologically based evaluation and treatment procedures. Results indicated that children in the phonological group showed significantly greater improvement in a significantly shorter period of time than children in the traditional group.
