SPEECH THERAPY. The ”Super /z/’s Articulation Practice” packet which is a unique and visual approach to articulation. I found this approach effective for students who have extreme difficulty producing the /z/ sound especially in the special education population. These activities use a graphic organizer visual and singles out the /z/ sound. The visual aspect appears to help with the student’s attention and focus to attempt to make the /z/ sound. I have used this with children with autism, language delays and attention deficits. I have also included a visual cue card to remind the child how the /z/ sound is produced. This packet includes 10 pages:
Let’s buzz practices making the /z/ in insolation, keeping the voice on. (1 page)
/z/ with a vowel sound (1 page)
/z/ in the initial position (3 pages)
/z/ in the medial position. (4 pages)
/z/ in the final position (5 pages)
A cover page in case you want to make a booklet.
A page with two visual/verbal cue cards for /z/. The top card is more detailed then the bottom card. You choose which one is suitable, or you may have your own technique.
