Topic outline

  • General

  • Topic 1

    This section is for students working on understanding and correctly expressing themselves through the English language. 

  • Topic 2

    This section is for students working on producing speech fluently.
  • Topic 3

    This section is for students working on creating speech sounds correctly.  Please also find your child's sound in the section below, including the cues given during therapy that adults can give students at home. 
  • Topic 4

    This section is for students working on "th".  The verbal cue to give is "stick your tongue out and blow a little air on it".  Please model this for your child and provide a mirror when possible.

  • Topic 5

    This section is for students working on "r".  The verbal cue to give is "pull your tongue up and back".  If your student has been in speech for "r" for more than a year, you can also say, "Say that with a 'good r' please."  Also, if your student says a word with a "w" instead of "r", please repeat it incorrectly so they can hear what they said.  For example, "The wabbit jumped?  No, the rabbit jumped."

  • Topic 6

    This section is for students working on "s" or multiple sound clusters.  The physical cue for the "s" is to run your index finger down your arm (starting at your shoulder and ending at your fingertips) to cue them to hold the "s" sound out longer.  If your child is making "s" but struggling with the other sounds in the cluster, please model the second sound before asking them to put the "s" on the front.  For example, "You said 'sew', I wanted you to say 'snow'.  Try 'no', now try 'snow'."
