The /r/ Screener is an informal assessment for students who need to work on the /r/ sound. This digital screening is used to determine the optimal place to begin articulation therapy for each individual. /r/ is a complex phoneme to produce, and what works well for one child doesn't necessarily work for another. Some do well beginning with initial /r/; some do well beginning with a blend; others may do best with vocalic /r/. Even within vocalic /r/, therapy can't be one size fits all. That's why this screening looks at initial /r/ followed by different vowels, all of the /r/ blends, and all of the vocalic /r/ sounds in the initial, medial, and final positions. This screener will help you to identify what context the child is able to produce or is stimulable for. It can either be used in it's entirety or with specific sections only. To keep kids' attention, the PowerPoint slides advance with varied transitions, and stimulus pictures come in with fun and varied animations. Reading is not required for this screening. In addition, images are mainly photos, and are appropriate for all ages.
