You may have heard of cycles, an evidenced-based type of therapy for unintelligible children. You wanted to implement it, but it's confusing, hard to organize, and even harder to maintain. I felt the same way and came up with a way to implement cycles efficiently and effectively!
This cycles toolkit targets the following phonological processes and sounds:
•Syllable Reduction (2, 3, and 4 syllables)
•Syllable Structure (CV, VC, CVC, CVCV)
•Fronting (initial /g/ and /k/)
•Backing (initial /t/ and /d/)
•Final Consonant Deletion (final /p/, /t/, /k/, /m/)
•Stopping (initial /s/, /f/, /v/, /z/, and "sh", final /s/ and /f/)
•Cluster Reduction (initial /sm/, /sp/, /st/, /sk/, /sn/, and /sl/, final /ks/, /ps/, and /ts/)
•Gliding (initial /l/ and /r/)
There are 5-15 targets for each sound. For example, there are 5 targets for 4-syllable words, 10 targets for initial /sm/, and 15 targets for initial /l/. The number varies on how many appropriate target words I found for each sound!
Included in this packet is:
•Example phonology goals
•Developmental norms handout
•Informal phonology screener
•Informal phonology assessment
•Progress monitoring forms
•FAQs for implementing cycles
•Summary pages for each process (of the targeted words on the flashcards)
•Flashcards in both color and black & white for the processes named above
•Watercolor card deck covers
•Watercolor toolbox labels

If you're looking for just the assessment forms and organizational tools (NO flashcards), I uploaded a separate resource just for you. Click here to check it out!
Note: I added 14 pages of simpler target word flashcards (in color only!) at the end of the packet so you had way more options for targets! The word list for this section was compiled by Brianna Nickell, MA CCC-SLP.
