There is nothing more functional in communication than being understood through the proper articulation of sounds!
For a complete set of placement strategies for the articulation of prevocalic/vocalic r, s/z, l, th, sh/ch, and f/v, along with detailed descriptions, reproducibles, and much more, my instructional book and DVD, Articulation Strategies That Work! is available to you at www.northernspeech.com.
This program will teach SLPs articulation strategies that work for the top 10 sounds most frequently in error among school-age children, and it includes an instructional DVD!You will be able to watch short video clips of each of the placement strategies being taught with student success. These strategies are more than just elicitation techniques. They are strategies that are easy for students to understand, remember, and use as they learn their target sounds and monitor their own performance. The program will also come with lots of practical and easy-to-implement therapy ideas and materials!
“It's simple, concise and relevant, and it comes with very practical therapy materials that are easy to reproduce and use immediately.”
“I have a second grader who recently got /r/ in isolation, and we were starting on CVC words. Having the lists made it so easy to determine which vowels were easy for him with the /r/ and which ones we will put off until he's ready, and they weren't necessarily the ones I would have thought!” B. Holmes, Wichita, KS
Another great articulation resource that I've discovered is SATPAC. It is a web-based systematic therapy program that remediates deficits quickly and efficiently. SATPAC will make an infinite number of lists for whatever your client's particular needs are. SATPAC is unique in that the therapy models conversational speech as much as possible instead of working on isolated sounds and words. A recent study on the /s/ sound found that 2/3 of the participants were completely remediated after just 2.5 hours of direct therapy (10 min/wk for 15 weeks). To watch remediation techniques for /r/ and /s/ and to get an overview of the SATPAC Program, visit www.satpac.com, go to the bottom of the page and click on Free CEUs.
For Spanish/English articulation practice
Words provided are nouns, verbs, and adjectives that are Spanish/English cognates (or begin with the same sound or sound class) for S/Z and L sounds (40+ words for each sound group). The words can be easily printed on cardstock or business card paper for practicing articulation skills in both languages. Also great for teaching new vocabulary, for generating sentences, for defining, and for grammar reinforcement (parts of speech)!
