Product Description
This activity is intended for children who have difficulty with alveolar to velar movement in CVC words.

For instance, these children may be able to produce /d/ in the word “dad;” however, when they are producing the word “dog” they assimilate the /d/ to a /g/ so it sounds like “gog!”

Engine to Caboose uses a train analogy as visual for where /t/ and /d/ (front) and /k/ and /g/ (back) are placed in the mouth.
