This set of activities was created to help students acquire vocalic /r/ sounds using the effects of coarticulation. Coarticulation is the effect of one sounds’ articulator placement on other sounds surrounding it in words. Coarticulation can help the brain program new motor plans for specific speech sounds using phonetic contexts in treatment stimuli.

-Instructions for use and sequence of suggested therapy activities to establish sound production
-2 Teaching pages and treatment cards for each type of vocalic /r/ (ar, air, ear, er, or, ire)- one is customizable
