According to the Clinical Guidelines of the Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists (www.rcslt.org/resources, 2005) and the Preferred Practice Patterns of The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (www.asha.org/members/deskref/journals/deskref/default, 2004):

  • Acquiring effective spoken language involves the development of a range of processing skills, which utilizes multisensory information and the development of phonology and articulation.
  • Speech sound intervention should focus on improvement of speech sound discrimination and production.
  • Speech sound intervention should include general facilitation of newly-acquired articulation and/or phonological abilities to a variety of speaking, listening, and literacy-learning contexts.

The Spotlight on Articulation series incorporates the above principles and are also based on expert professional practice.

Introduction

You can never have too many materials—especially for articulation practice!  It takes a lot of practice to change a student's articulation patterns.  The goal of the Spotlight on Articulation series is to provide lots of fun practice across many levels (e.g., syllable, word, sentence).

In the Spotlight on Articulation series, you'll find worksheets with pictures, words, and sentences and engaging activities (e.g., mazes, tic-tac-toes, games, rebus stories, fill-ins).  We have used a variety of words to allow for practice in many different phonetic contexts.  To give students more practice per word, have them repeat the word a specific number of times or do the activity page a second time.

The activity sheets are designed to be pick-up-and-use ready.  They are arranged in a hierarchy by word position, but you can start wherever you wish and pick and choose the pages that suit your student's level of performance.  A progress chart is included to help track your student's progress.

The syllable activity sheet is versatile enough to work on the target phoneme in all positions.

We hope your students enjoy the Spotlight on Articulation series.
