I love the Artic Shuffle Playing Cards.  I'm always ready to do therapy if I have a deck of these cards and my students never tire of "a game of cards."

I was excited to see the return of the Artic Shuffle Playing Cards.  My students love them.  The best benefit is the versatility.  It's appropriate for elementary AND middle school students.

  • Speech-sound intervention involves facilitation of newly-acquired articulation abilities to a variety of speaking and listening contexts (ASHA, 2004).
  • Impairment in phonology and speech production impedes the development of effective communication, language, and/or speech (Taylor-Goh, 2005).
  • Speech-sound intervention should facilitate correct productions across word positions and linguistic units (Bernthal & Bankson, 2004).

Artic Shuffle incorporates these principles and is also based on expert professional practice.
