Easy Does it for Articulation: A Phonological Approach

Ages: 3-8   Grades: PreK-3
Expand the word repertoire of children with highly unintelligible speech.  Use a treatment sequence and carefully-selected stimuli based on the work of Barbara Williams Hodson and Elaine Pagel Paden. 

Experienced and beginning clinicians love the Easy Does It series for their:  

  • detailed explanation of therapy techniques
  • systematic lesson plans
  • clear goals and objectives
  • student practice activities and materials

Easy Does It for Articulation A Phonological Approach is based on the premise of giving children with severe phonological processing disorders words they can successfully produce.  The words are carefully selected so the phonetic contexts of the target words do not contain other phonetic patterns that are typically deviant in children.   

 

The program targets twelve phonological processes.  Seven processes are primary or early-developing:

  • syllableness
  • consonant singletons (m, n, p, b, t, d, w, h)
  • velars (k, g)
  • alveolars (t, d)
  • stridents and two-consonant sequences (final, initial, and medial /s/ blends)
  • liquid /l/
  • liquid /r/

Secondary patterns are addressed if specific errors persist after the primary processes are established:

  • voicing (p/b, t/d, k/g, f/v, s/z, ch/y)
  • vowels
  • singleton stridents (f, s, y, ch, sh,)
  • glide sequences (tw, kw, sw, y)
  • three-consonant sequences (str, skr, spr, spl, skw)

Copy the student activity pages or print them from the FREE CD.  The two-book program provides:  

  • listening /auditory bombardment activities
  • learning activities such as cueing strategies and placement techniques
  • auditory bombardment pictures to print and color
  • reproducible flash cards for each level of the twelve phonological processes
  • activities and practice notes
  • family letter
  • oral motor activities
  • pictures of hand signals
  • response forms
