This set will help you to target those tricky sounds that may be produced with a lisp, distortion, or lateralized airflow. With this package, you can provide education regarding proper placement and airflow, as well as scaffolded training and practice exercises. This 11-page set includes:

  • Visual to introduce each sound with names to represent the sound attributes. This visual also includes a 3-step process chart to help elicit correct placement and airflow
  • Visual to facilitate discrimination of frontal airflow (either modeled by clinician pr produced by student themselves). Target metacognitive awareness as well by using this visual to provide cues for feedback or for students to self-evaluate their own productions
  • Visual support for sound practice using hand as a self-cueing strategy for frontal airflow detection
  • Streaming Sounds Single-word Practice Page - Elicit accurate tongue placement of these tricky sounds with this practice page utlizing "high" vowels (to avoid low/flat tongue patterns
  • Streaming Sounds Practice Page - Shaping Across Word Boundaries - elicit correct tongue position by shaping across word boundaries for alveolar and palatal sound targets.
  • Isolated Sound Practice Pages - as students become more accurate with tongue placement and airflow stream, these practice pages will help them achieve multiple trials (35 trials per page). Separate pages for s, z, sh, and ch with visuals to remind them of the target sounds.
