From Speech Essentials comes an amazing new packet of materials for children with Developmental Apraxia of Speech (DAS) and children with Dysarthria. Students often make good gains with CV, VC, CVCV, and CVC combinations and even begin to combine these words in conversational speech, yet still lack clarity. In many cases, this is because final consonant blends are difficult for them due to the physical transition between consonants. By leaving out one of the consonants, it can affect plurals, possessives, past tense and third person verbs. This can cause your students' connected speech to be unintelligible, even though they have met many of their basic goals. Focusing on final consonant combinations has been the key for many of my students! Included in this packet are final consonant combinations for nearly all possible final consonant blends in the form of dated data sheets, which allow you to see progress as your students work on this new pattern of speech!
