I'm sure we have all met those students who:
* Have a restricted speech sound inventory
* Are using a range of phonological processes
* Are making a range of articulation errors
* Are not ready for the production side of therapy just yet.
Does any of that sound familiar? This pack is designed to meet the needs of those children; with mouth shape prompt cards, targeted modelling phrases, interactive mats, sound association activities and more, this resource is sure to become a staple in your therapy toolkit.
About this pack
Children who find sounds difficult to say, benefit from hearing an adult say sounds to them, without the need/pressure of them saying the sound themselves. The aim of these activities is for the child to listen to you saying the sounds they find more difficult. The child can have a go at saying the sounds if they want to; but they do not have to. The activities are based on the ideas of Focused Auditory Input and Input Modelling, and are suitable for young children, and those with articulation difficulties or disordered phonological processes.
The pack is not seasonally themed so it is suitable to be used all year round, with all types of children. Many of the activities/resources are ready to print and use right away, but some of the others require a little preparation ahead of time, however once you've prepped them, they're ready to use again and again with a wide range of students!
