This item is an articulation screener that targets 23 consonant phonemes, including all two consonant /s/ blends, /l/ blends, and /r/ blends, as well as all /r/ vowels. The majority of consonant phonemes in this screener are targeted in all three positions of words (initial, medial, and final) with the exceptions of /w, h, j (y), -ng, voiced-th/ and all two consonant blends.
It contains two different picture stimuli options for presentation and there are pictures/icons for each word designed to illicit independent responses from the student. Both picture stimuli options consist of icons that are engaging and relevant. One set of picture stimuli consists of only 3 pictures per page for those students who need their visual presentation to be less overwhelming with decreased distractibility. The second picture stimuli option consists of 28 smaller picture icons per page. Also included is a template screener form which is only one page for recording student responses.
Depending on the setting in which you work, it is very common to not have formal screening measures to use. Therefore we do the best we can informally. This is something I created and have been using throughout this past year. I feel it works well for me and the students also seem to enjoy it. Typical administration time takes between 10 – 20 minutes, however depending on each individual students abilities this time may vary.
If you have available technology, instead of printing each page of picture stimuli, you could even download this onto your iPad/tablet and/or use a computer for administration. I have been primarily administering this from my iPad and find it to be incredibly easy! In doing it this way, there are no pages to worry about physically flipping through while also trying to record the student responses on the printable template response form. However, if you do not have available technology to do this on, then the paper version works easily too!
While the total pages of this entire document is 35, the 3 icons per page picture stimuli is a total of 29 pages, the 28 smaller icons per page stimuli is a total of 3 pages, and the template screener response form is 1 page.
Thank you for considering this product!
