This instrument can be used to analyze and probe for stimulability of the /r/ sound in a wide variety of phonemic contexts (preceding 10 vowel sounds, as part of 12 different consonant blends, following 9 vowel sounds, and as a medial consonant in 5 words). This information may be used to guide therapy for students who have already otherwise been deemed eligible for speech services. This is not a diagnostic tool and does not offer norm-based information.
This instrument is intended to be used by speech-language pathologists, speech therapists, and other professionals trained in the area of speech and communication disorders. When the inventory has been completed, the information may be used to guide therapy activities (e.g., using the most successful phonemic parameters to help shape the /r/ sound in other areas) and to document progress (e.g., pre-therapy and post-therapy).
