The workshop sequence provided school based speech-language pathologists with training on how to implement ultrasound biofeedback as a treatment tool for remediation of speech sound errors.  The sequence guides learners* with the acquisition of foundational skills on how to interpret a sonographic tongue image for assessment and speech sound intervention and how to use facilitative contexts to promote changes in tongue shape for accurate speech sound production.

Dr. Rivera Campos earned his PhD degree at the University of Cincinnati.  He has published research in the use of ultrasound biofeedback and its clinical use for remediation of speech sound errors.  His research laboratory at Texas Christian University, Biofeedback Education for Speech Treatment (BEST Lab), focuses in the clinical use of biofeedback technologies (e.g. ultrasound biofeedback, electropalatography) in the field of speech production as well as offering education and accessibility of some of these technologies to speech language pathologists in the field.
