Welcome to Twin Speech!
We compiled handouts for both adults and children in order to teach them speaking intelligibility improvement techniques. If a person incorporates these 12 techniques into their speech, their overall speech clarity will certainly improve in intelligibility and other people will understand what they are trying to say much better.
All 12 techniques are illustrated and explained. Also, we have reviewed them with our motor speech clients with reduced intelligibility and have seen very positive results! Their overall speaking intelligibilities have improved greatly with reminders to use these techniques.
We hope that you find the more detailed handout with pictures of adults illustrating the important points beneficial for your adults with reduced speaking intelligibility due to dysarthria and apraxia.
We also hope that the other two handouts with less words and age-appropriate illustrations work well with your pre-k to grade school students. Put one of these handout up in the speech therapy classroom for a friendly reminder to all of your students to do things such as; sit up straight, swallow often, take a breath before speaking, and so on..
The contents of this unit are as follows:
