Although providing visual feedback with ultrasound is becoming more and more popular among speech-language pathologists, it is still not widely used, perhaps because many speech-language pathologists are unfamiliar with its application to treatment of speech sound disorders. This report introduces basic information on ultrasound for new users and summarizes existing studies conducted with ultrasound to provide clinical evidence for speech treatment. This report also presents a clinical case using ultrasound and discusses a treatment protocol for establishing postvocalic /r/ to illustrate an example of how ultrasound was used in a clinical setting.
