PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The 8.5x11" poster included in this product is designed to be an integral part of the Maximal Pairs approach to phonological therapy. The consonant sounds are listed systematically, in order of placement of production in the mouth (from front to back). It is designed for Stimulability Training, a quick way to assess which sounds a child has in their phonological system and to provide quick cues to 'shape' incorrect productions. Standing in front of the mirror with the SLP behind & to the side allows the SLP to see students' oral movements and model correct production at the same time. The activity should take no more than 5 minutes of your session, but packs quite a punch by allowing you to work on every consonant sound during every session! Have some fun with it by using a variety of pointer-tools for pointing to the consonants. I love using pencils with fancy, seasonal toppers and the kids love it too -- especially when those toppers light up or make noise!

Maximal Pairs is a therapy approach to address severe articulation and phonological disorders. It's a research-based, highly effective strategy for increasing intelligibility (Gierut, 2007). Maximal Pairs therapy contrasts words with 2 very different sounds, in a technique similar to Minimal Pairs. Sounds are chosen based on their significant differences with relation to manner, place, and voicing, as well as obstruent/sonorant characteristics. The keys to this therapy are the use of 2 sounds that are not in the child's phonemic inventory and the inclusion of phonemic awareness activities. Use the "Say it, Move it" technique for breaking down words and blending them back together with the target words, in addition to your drill activities, and you will be amazed at the progress you see!

I have been using this technique with my kiddos for the past 5 years and have seen amazing growth! It's easy and incredibly effective. The hardest part is choosing your target sounds and finding words to target those sounds. I can't do the first part for you, but I hope some my tools will help you with the second part!
