Who: For Speech-Language Pathologists working with students with childhood apraxia of speech and/or severe phonological disorders. These students usually begin speech therapy with multiple repetitions of simple consonant – vowel sequences and then progress to the more difficult sound combinations.

Note: these are syllable shapes based on sounds and approximations of sounds and not orthography, meaning they are not intended for reading practice.

What: Using a hole punch, students track their own repetitions of orally spoken (not reading) CV, VC, CVCV, CVC, and CCVC syllable shapes depending on their level in the speech hierarchy:

• word

• phrase

• sentence

Each mini-book is arranged by voicing, manner, and/or place of articulation (e.g. bilabial stops).

This is a 39 printable page download (52 total pages with instructions and credits). Included are 13 mini-books:

Level 1

1. CV syllable shape (voiced and voiceless) – 10 target pictures

2. VC syllable shape – 10 target pictures
