BERTICELLI, Aline and MOTA, Helena Bolli. Occurrence of repair strategies for the stops considering the severity of the phonological disorder. Rev. CEFAC [online]. ahead of print, pp. 0-0. Epub Apr 05, 2012. ISSN 1982-0216. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-18462012005000027.
PURPOSE: to check the occurrence of repair strategies for the phonemes /b/, /d/, /k/ e /g/ and their relation to the severity of phonological disorder. METHOD: 54 subjects were selected with a diagnosis of phonological disorder who had repair strategies for the stops / b /, / d /, / k / and / g / in the onset positions (initial and / or medial), with 40% of employment in their phonological systems. Data were statistically analyzed using the Statistical Analysis System program, version 8.02, and using the Fisher Test. The level of significance was 5% (p< 0.05). RESULTS: there was a significant difference for / b / with greater frequency of devoicing in children from moderate-severe and severe degrees, and backing and use of two or more strategies in the severe degree. Statistically significant difference for /d/ with greater frequency of backing in the subjects with mild degree, of devoicing and use of two or more strategies in patients with moderate-severe degree, and devoicing in those with severe degree. CONCLUSION: the more complex in terms of acquisition and production are the stops, most repair strategies are used. And yet, the greater is the degree of phonological disorder, the greater is the number of times where these strategies are used, showing that the child has less phonological knowledge.
