Provide a multi-modal cueing approach to your students with apraxia working on vowels, as they dot, slide, or smash their way across CV, VC, CVC, and CVCV words! Mouth position for vowels and picture cues included. Line drawings and black and white pictures make this a low-ink, printer-friendly option!
Instructions for the mats:
★The circles over the consonants in the words can either be dotted with a finger or paint dauber as the student says the sound, or used as a smash mat with play dough if laminated
★The arrow over the vowel can be traced with the finger as the student produces the vowel
★A picture of the word at the end provides additional visual representation and can be highlighted if the student is not yet reading
★As modeling of correct productions are important for children with apraxia, these tactile mats are intended to be used with an adult model
This resource can be used with children with a very small word repertoire: the first page of each sound combination includes only the very early consonants of /p, b, m, m, w, t, & d/. In addition, the first page of CVCV sound include reduplicated sounds.
These pages are perfect for instruction in a therapy session, or sent home as homework to work on with a parent!
