Articulation Fluency/Automaticity Home Practice for /r/.
This product is designed to be used by speech-language pathologists as a home program for clients/students. Articulation “fluency” mimics the reading fluency home practice in that practice for 5 minutes daily may improve automaticity of speech sound productions. Each speech-language pathologist should determine if this program is right for his/her client(s) and send home materials accordingly. The product includes 12 weeks of practice for each target sound purchased. One week of practice (or 5 minutes 4 times weekly) which includes 4 varied levels of practice is set up to be copied front to back, if desired, allowing for one sheet of paper per week.
Weeks 1, 4, 7, & 10 include: Isolation, Word level, Sentence level, & Structured conversation
Weeks 2, 5, 8, & 11 include: Syllable level, Word level, Sentence level, & Reading
Weeks 3, 6, 9, & 12 include: Discrimination, Word level, Sentence level, & Spontaneous conversation
Each of the 4 activities includes a rating scale for student and helper/listener. Included within each packet is a parent letter which cites ASHA research on home practice and the Motor Learning Approach (Skelton, 2005). A parent letter page that defines terms and gives placement and production cues for each target sound is also included. This product targets the /r/ sound.
Additionally, therapist logs for individual students as well as multiple students are included to keep track of homework sent. Data collection sheets are provided for therapist use. Blank pages are included to design your own activities and targets.
