  • Children with spoken language problems frequently have difficulty learning to read and write, and children with reading and writing problems frequently have difficulty with spoken language.  Instruction in spoken language can result in growth in written language, and instruction in written language can result in growth in spoken language (ASHA, 2001).
  • 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).

No-Glamour Articulation Cards incorporates these principles and is also based on expert professional practice.
