These materials are designed for children who are able to produce sounds in isolation or can combine sounds at the disconnected level. They have significant difficulty connecting the sounds together in a smooth coarticulated sequence.
The combinations include CVCV, VC, CV, VCV, and CVC for the early developing sounds. Each word uses gradual syllable shaping which requires closer approximations as each combination is produced until accurate, fluent coarticulation of the target is achieved. Systematic multiple repetitions and modeling may be needed since these children have difficulty establishing the motor pathways for speech.
Print pages 5-90 and 92-117 back to back so that the text is on the back of each picture. It looks like the words are on the wrong side, but when you print 2-sided, they will be in back of the correct picture. Print pages 3, 4, and 91 singly. I prefer to use card stock for durability. Laminate and cut in half.
Bind the pages into a single book, or bind into separate books for each combination.
