Sound Start Study

Charles Sturt University

The Sound Start Study is a research project funded by an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Grant and conducted by researchers from Charles Sturt University, The University of Sydney, and The University of the West of England. The Sound Start Study focuses on 4- to 5-year-old children who are attending preschool. The main aims of this study are to investigate the speech skills of 4- to 5-year-old children and to determine the effectiveness of the innovative computer program, Phoneme Factory Sound Sorter (PFSS) as an intervention for preschool children with speech difficulties. Development of the Australian version of PFSS is supported by the Rural and Distance Education team from the New South Wales Department of Education and Communities (DEC).
