Are you looking for a comprehensive list of speech sound cues to help your students learn their target sounds?

What SLPs like you are saying:

Very helpful and a great on-hand reference while in the moment with a child who needed a little more cues.

This is BRILLIANT! I love all of it. The speech sound metaphors visual is so helpful and will help me to not get stuck on the same metaphor for all kids.

This is great to use both in person and virtually. I like all the metaphors to use for speech cues and how I can vary them based on what works best for the kids.
