WERTZNER, Haydée Fiszbein; AMARO, Luciana  and  TERAMOTO, Suzana Sumie. Severity of phonological disorders: perceptual judgment and percentage of correct consonants. Pró-Fono R. Atual. Cient. [online]. 2005, vol.17, n.2, pp.185-194. ISSN 0104-5687.

BACKGROUND: phonological disorder. AIM: to apply the percentage of correct consonant (PCC) index and to verify the correlation between this index and the one applied perceptually by judges. METHOD: the PCC index of 50 phonological disordered subjects was calculated, after 60 judges heard the phonological tests for each subject and perceptually attributed the severity. RESULTS: the PCC index varied from 40% to 98%, with the predominant classification of the population in the mild and mild-moderate levels. CONCLUSION: a correlation between the perceptual judgment and the PCC indexes exists.
