PEPPER is intended for use by researchers in communicative disorders and speech-language pathologists certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. It is intended as an aid to provide recommendations to intended users about classifications of speech disorders. Users are expected to exercise their independent judgment to classify speech patterns and should not rely primarily or exclusively on PEPPER for such classification. PEPPER may provide inaccurate results due to user or technical error, or unforeseen circumstances. Links to published papers that provide information underlying recommendations are available on the Phonology Project RESEARCH tab.
