Product Description
Sometimes, unclear speech isn’t caused by problems with speech sounds at the single sound level. Many people – children and adults alike – struggle with the movements required to sequence combinations of speech sounds, e.g. to go from a front sound like /t/ or /d/ to a back sound like /g/ or /k/ and back again quickly.

In this pack, we target tongue movements, specifically movements from sounds where the tongue tip touches the alveolar ridge at the front of the mouth (e.g. /t, d. s, z, n/) to sounds made by the back of the tongue near the soft palate (velum) (e.g. /k, g/ and “ng”). We call these movements alveolar-velar and velar-alveolar movements.

Together, these articulation stories are designed to train specific speech sound movements. They are not tongue twisters in the traditional sense. Instead, the stories are loaded with words and phrases designed to target a particular pattern of speech movement.

Clinically, we’ve had good results using these stories with a variety of clients, including older children with residual speech sound errors and adults with speech issues associated with traumatic brain injuries, aphasia, and mild apraxia of speech. We’ve also used them in accent modification training to train movements that are common in English, but not common in a client’s first language. We hope you and your clients find them useful.
