apraxia of speech activities: apraxia speech therapy CV and VC packet
This apraxia of speech Kinesthetic Communication packet utilizes movement- based apraxia of speech activities (such as exercises and yoga poses) to engage your students while they practice VC and CV sound sequences during your speech therapy session.
This packet is perfect for children with apraxia of speech (childhood apraxia of speech) or severe articulation difficulties. It is a fun way to practice multiple repetitions of CV and VC sound sequences during speech therapy for apraxia of speech disorders or articulation disorders. Exercise and movement activities can have a positive impact on learning- I've found that when I incorporate movement and exercise into my speech therapy sessions, my students are more focused and motivated. Be on the lookout for more Kinesthetic Communication packets soon!
Each phoneme targeted in this apraxia of speech packet is paired with an exercise or yoga stretch (for example, the phoneme /m/ is paired with a “march in place” exercise). The student is instructed to practice a target CV or VC sound sequence 3x before performing the desired stretch or exercise for the indicated number of repetitions or time. Engage your students- get them moving with this fun-filled apraxia speech therapy packet!
Sounds targeted in VC and CV combinations include:
/p/, /b/, /m/, /w/ (*CV only*), /t/, /d/, /s/, /z/, /n/, /l/, /r/ (*CV only*), /k/, /g/,
/sh/, /ch/, /j / (as in jump), /f/, /v/, & /th/.
This apraxia of speech packet is no prep. I recommend printing all of the sheets and laminating them so you can use a dry erase marker to check off CV and VC sound sequence boxes once completed.
Disclaimer: This is not meant to be an exercise program. Please ensure that the student you are working with is able to participate in physical activity exercises and stretches prior to completing any worksheets. With any form of exercise, there is a risk of injury. Consulting with a medical professional is recommended if you are unsure if your student is able to complete any suggested tasks. All tasks suggested are voluntary. These worksheets are for educational purposes only.
