PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Hey SLPs! Provide phonological treatment more efficiently by using complexity principles. Treating 3 element consonant clusters results in greater system-wide change compared to treating singletons.

If you've tried targeting 3-element clusters before, you'll know that materials are hard to come by due to the lower number of imageable words that begin with each cluster.

This pack includes flashcards for words beginning with /skr/, /skw/, /spl/, /spr/, /str/, plus 6 games (with variations) and 1 craft. These activities aim to maximize productions of whichever 3-element cluster you are targeting.

INCLUDED:

3 Element Cluster Flashcards
Flashcards containing the most imageable words beginning with the following 3-element clusters:
/str/: 12 cards, 11 words
/skr/: 6 cards, 6 words
/spr/: 6 cards, 6 words
/spl/: 6 cards, 4 words
/skw/: 6 cards, 6 words

/SKR/
Includes 1 game: Scrubby Scrub Scrub

/SKW/
Includes 1 game: Squeak or Squawk

/SPL/
Includes 2 games with multiple variations: SPLAT! and Sea Animal Splash

/SPR/
Includes 1 craft and 1 game with variations: Sprinkles and Cupcake Craft

/STR/
Includes 1 game with an individual and group version: Strange Monsters


(Remember that 3 element clusters are only appropriate if the 2nd and 3rd consonants of the cluster are in the student's phonemic inventory. )
