This product was designed to support SLP’s in intervention with students/patients diagnosed with fluency disorders. The “Rules for Smooth Speech” are fluency enhancing techniques that align with a fluency shaping treatment model. They were adapted from Runyan and Runyan’s “Rules Based Program.”
Providing students/patients with this visual support will help foster independence for applying learned strategies. The visual can be shared with caregivers and classroom teachers to help facilitate the transfer and maintenance phase of treatment, and support the student/patient in generalizing skills outside of the therapy setting.
This product includes 2 visuals: 1 basic visual for younger students, which breaks strategies down in to short, memorable phrases, and 1 advanced visual, which includes technical terms for the strategies. The advanced visual may be used by the SLP in teaching strategies, or by older students capable of understanding the physiology behind the strategies.
