A substantial amount of research and effort has sought effective means of obtaining carry-over or transfer of training of articulation skills. The pertinent research findings relating to the transfer of training in articulation therapy are reviewed. These are discussed as they relate to five stages of articulation therapy: (1) discrimination training, (2) sounds in isolation, (3) transfer among words, (4) sentences, and (5) spontaneous conversational speech. Two instructional procedures are being used to maximize transfer of training: (1) management of speaking situations outside the clinical setting and (2) use of carefully sequenced instructional programs which are self-contained, requiring little or no outside management. The author concludes that if more effective research strategies are employed, it may be possible to pinpoint those variables speech clinicians can manipulate to further enhance transfer of training.
