This clinical study evaluated the effectiveness of the S-Pack Program in eliminating frontal lisping behavior. The subjects were 10 male and 8 female third-grade children with frontal lisps. Six clinicians put them through the three-part establishment program. This was followed by a 15-day transfer program carried out by their parents. An articulation screening test (UOST), the Predictive Screening Test of Articulation (PSTA), and the Arizona Articulation Proficiency Scale (AAPS) administered before and after the program indicated significant improvement in /s/ production. An analysis of a sample of conversational speech taken at the end of the program revealed that 50% of the children demonstrated 90% or better /s/ productions. The S-Pack is an effective, efficient procedure for correcting frontal lisps.
