Advance your clients to intelligible speech with this convenient, skillfully designed resource that has 300 photo and illustration cards, systematic stimulus hierarchies, and functional content. This step-by-step product lets you:

  • engage clients with true-to-life photos and illustrated scenes
  • choose words by phonetic complexity from VC and CV word forms to multisyllable words
  • use a systematic cueing hierarchy
  • reduce the language load for clients by using semantically-related words
  • teach functional phrases and sentences

There are 300, 5" x 7" cards organized around twelve themes. The target words within each theme/unit progress from VC and CV word forms to multisyllable words. Each theme/unit has:

  • 5 pretest/posttest cards (60 total) - Establish a baseline and monitor progress with:
    • words of increasing length within the unit/theme

    • wh- question

Some words are repeated from the photo cards and other words are new but semantically related to the unit. Use the cards to build intelligible connected speech and bridge to conversational speech.

    • open-ended conversation
