These target word cards can be used when focusing on phonological/articulation goals. Specifically, these cards can be used to focus on remediation of the velar pattern including postvocalic (final) velar “K,” prevocalic “K”, and prevocalic “G”, especially within the cycles approach. Cut these word cards apart, punch a hole in the upper left corner, pick appropriate target words for each child, and place on a word ring for that individual child.
These word cards are ordered by difficulty for each sound pattern. Some of the initial words are provided with minimal contrasts. Students/clients benefit from the consideration of facilitative phonetic environment and syllable structure of target words.
