- 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).
- One of the most frequently misarticulated sounds is /r/. Many researchers have addressed the variability of the /r/ phoneme and the need to consider the various allophones in assessment and intervention (Curtis & Hardy, 1959; Shine, Downes, & Denning, 1982; Pollock, 1991; Ristuccia & Aldridge, 2007).
Vocalic R Shuffle App incorporates these principles and is also based on expert professional practice.
