There are a oodles of resources for targeting the ‘s’ sound in therapy, and hundreds of ‘r’ books… but what about phonological processes? Do a Google search and I’m not sure if you will come up with anything other minimal pairs. So what I really want to know is how you teach phonological processes. Is there a certain image, concept or analogy that you use in therapy? What are your tips, tricks, visuals cues, hand signals or models that you use? Is there a toy or game that is just perfect that you can’t live without? I put these free sheets up for ‘s’ clusters as a way that I teach cluster reduction and my concept of a ‘tail sound’ for final consonant deletion, but I am sure that someone else out there is doing something more creative!
So the Phonological Processes Participation begins! I was inspired by Katie over at the blog Playing with Words 365 with her Eliciting Sounds Survey and thought that it was brilliant to create a survey and encourage hundreds, if not thousands of SLPs to contribute. With over 1000 subscribers to this site, even a 5% participation rate would mean 50 new tips!
So please share your phonological process ideas and submit this form. I will freely share all the ideas and hopefully be inspired to create some new resources. Just scroll through the form below and add what you can, even if it is only one tip, I’d be happy to read it!
