Target Audience

  • Children ages 9-15 years old or a 4th Grade reading level.
  • Ideal for group therapy — great for schools and private practice.
  • Appropriate for mild cognitive impairment.


Target 6 sounds simultaneously during group therapy! This innovative program was developed by an SLP seeking an easy and creative way to target multiple sounds simultaneously in a group setting. Thus the Articulation Theatre Books were created! The 6 books contain matching plays and pagination with each book targeting only one sound: /R, S, L, Sh, Ch, Th/. The only variation between them is the lines focusing on different speech sounds! This allows students to participate in the same fun and effective group therapy activity despite working on different speech sounds. It's also incredibly motivating to students as they engage in the repetitive practice needed to achieve articulation goals.


These books are motivating, effective, and fun!

  • Curriculum Supporting Material.
  • Features playfully illustrated, no-preparation play scripts targeting R, S, L, Sh, Ch, Th.
  • Each book contains 10 mix-and-match plays, which include target sounds in all word positions.
  • 600 color-coded lines highlighting targeted sounds to increase student self-monitoring.
  • Word lists are color-coded by initial, medial and final positions for all articulation targets in each play.


  1. Each book targets a specific sound.
  2. Students select the book featuring their target sound.
  3. Each student opens his or her book to the same page. "In The Mood For Food" play starting on page 98 in this example.
  4. Page 98 will feature the same theme ("In The Mood For Food") in all 6 books, while the script lines in each book are unique to that book's target sound.
  5. Students take turns reading aloud their unique lines in their book, and in doing so are performing together in the same play with each student focusing on his or her target sound.


For example, if your student Ryan is working on R, Shelly on SH, and Charlie on CH, give each of them the book focusing on their respective speech sound. Next, ask them to find the play "In The Mood For Food" in their books. While Ryan, Shelly, and Charlie all have the same play about their favorite foods in each of their books, their lines are different from each other so they can practice their specific target sound. As students take turns reading aloud their own lines, they are performing in the same humorous play together. Group therapy has never been more fun!
