Description

The “Speech Skate Park” is a useful remediation tool for “Initial S” and “S-Blends”. This resource contains several visuals that are used to emphasize the sound in isolation and at the word level in a highly engaging way. Simply slide the "finger skateboard" or printable "skater kid" across the ramp while prolonging the initial "s" sound! This is a great activity for young children exhibiting several phonological processes with reduced intelligibility! Children with articulation errors of "initial s" and "s-blends" will also benefit from this resource.

("Finger skateboards" are not included. You can find them at Party City  or on Amazon

Included:

•100 picture flashcards Cards: 10 each for (sk, sc, sm, sn, st, sp, sw, sl, initial s CVC and multisyllabic) 

12 minimal pairs for mixed “s-blends” 

•Mouth visuals for the following sounds: k/c, m, n, t, p, w, and l 

•5 skater kids used to skate through the skate park while prolonging the “s” sound 

•3 different skate parks (s-blends with mouth visual, s-blends with minimal pair, and initial s)  (***UPDATE: 18 MINIMAL PAIR VISUALS ADDED 4/23/18)

Why target "s-blends" early?

Research states that targeting “S-Blends” early with children exhibiting phonological processes can carryover to remediation of other sounds and increase speech intelligibility. 

"...it soon became apparent that targeting word-initial singleton /f/ or /s/ first was a mistake for children who substituted stops for stridents and also reduced /s/ clusters. As we experimented with targeting /s/ clusters before singleton stridents for these children, they achieved major gains in intelligibility. Moreover, most of the children generalized to singleton stridents, eliminating the need to target them.”
