Abstract

Purpose: Transcription of speech sounds is a fundamental skill used by speech-language pathologists. Little is known about the impact of professional development courses on transcription accuracy and confidence. This study explored speech-language pathologists’ use and perceptions of transcription and the effect of a professional development course on their transcription accuracy and confidence.

Method: A quasi-experimental, one-group pretest-posttest design was used. Twenty-two Australian speech-language pathologists working with children with speech sound disorders participated in the course. Participants transcribed single words and completed a survey about confidence, perceptions, and the use of transcription at both time points.

Result: The number of participants who reported feeling confident about using transcription significantly increased from 36.84% pre-training to 68.42% post-training. Transcription accuracy of phonemes based on point-to-point accuracy was high pre-training (88.97%) and did not significantly improve. Participants identified strategies to maintain their transcription skills.

Conclusion: This study suggests speech-language pathologists transcribe single words in typical speech with high accuracy using broad transcription, and that participating in a transcription professional development course increases their transcription confidence. Further research is needed to explore different delivery methods of professional development, the impact of professional development on transcription accuracy of disordered speech, and the long-term impacts of professional development on transcription accuracy and confidence.
