The purpose of this poster is to explore non-words (NWs) as targets in the treatment of speech sound disorders (SSD) in children. To better understand the basic science behind word lexicality and phonological learning, the mechanisms at work will be explained. Non-words, phonological representation, and lexical representation will be defined in order to further understand the potential benefits of using non-words in therapy.
