Global Online Education for Speech Science Competency (GOESSC) was established in 2004 to provide guidelines and
multimedia teaching software for effective teaching of basic
speech science (undergraduate level) and applied speech
science (graduate level) courses.
The ultimate goal of
teaching speech science courses to speech pathology students is to facilitate
their effective learning of very complex Multifunctional Relationships among Anatomy, Physiology, Acoustics,
Perception, Pathology, and Measurement of Speech.
Six GOESSC teaching
software programs were developed by Byoung W. Kim, Ph.D. and John Grozik, M.S.
during their tenure at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to simplify the
Complexity of the Multifunctional Relationships via Multimedia Simulation
List of Six GOESSC Interactive Multimedia Teaching Software:
PowerPoint Show files for all GOESSC Interactive Teaching Software have been
recently created and made available for free download for the purpose of
introducing the major content of the software. All files are PPT Slide Show of
Key Images without Audio except for “Phonetic & Perception Simulation”
which has full audio wav. files of major English Speech Sounds. For the use of
full application software, you will need to purchase the GOESSC interactive
multimedia software. They are fully compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7
(32-bit), and 7 (64-bit) Professional Operating
System with XP-Mode/Virtual PC (free download).

Basic Speech Science Course Outline
The Speech Science course is a 3-credit undergraduate primer for integrating anatomy, physiology, acoustics and perception of speech via multimedia computer-based simulation (theory-based animation) of multifunctional relationships among anatomy, physiology, acoustics and perception of speech.

2. Neural, Muscular, Kinematic, and Aerodynamic Aspects of Respiration for Sustained Phonation and Speech
3. Neural, Muscular, Kinematic, and Aerodynamic Aspects of Phonation
4. Myeoelastic-Aerodynamic Theory of Voice Production
5. Physiologic and Acoustic Correlates of Perceptual Parameters of Voice (Vocal Pitch, Vocal Loudness, and Vocal Quality)
6. Neural, Muscular, Kinematic, and Aerodynamic Aspects of Articulation-Resonation
7. Acoustic Source-Filter Theory of Speech Sound Production
