Product Description
Three levels of /r/ practice are included in this packet. The first page is a word list for /r/ auditory bombardment. The second and third pages are for teaching differentiation of /r/ and /w/ by emphasizing the retracted tongue and lips for /r/ versus the rounded lips for /w/. The rationale for the pictures of the articulators is to give as much visual support to the productions at the onset of therapy. These pages are great to send home for parents to see the difference as well. The fourth and fifth pages have the same words without the pictures of the articulators to allow for more independent productions, (i.e., without visual supports).

The picture pages can be used for auditory discrimination and for productions.

Anyone who has worked on teaching /r/ without also training /w/ knows that as a child's /r/ productions improve, their /w/ productions seem to begin to sound like the /r/ as well. By training /r/ through minimal pairs, emphasizing the differences in physical production, and increasing sound awareness, therapy time will be cut short.
