Articulation Fluency/Automaticity Home Practice for /sh, ch/.
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. This product targets /sh, ch/ sounds. Each page serves as 1 week of practice (or 5 minutes 4 times weekly) and includes 4 varied levels of practice.
Weeks, 1, 4, 7, & 10: Isolation, Words, Sentences, Structured Conversation
Weeks 2, 5, 8, & 11 : Syllables, Words, Sentences, Reading
Weeks 3, 6, 9, & 12: Discrimination, Words, Sentences, Carryover
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 page that defines terms and gives placement and production cues for each target sound is also included. This product targets /sh, ch/ sounds.
Additionally, therapist logs for individual students as well as multiple students are included to keep track of homework sent. Blank pages are included to design your own activities and targets.
