Cycles for Phonology

The use of a traditional articulation approach to treat phonological errors leads to slow progress and years in therapy.


Cycles focuses on patterns and efficient generalization of sounds through target selection, drastically reducing therapy time for children with phonological delays.


This interactive course will lead participants through the scoring of the Hodson Assessment of Phonological Processes-3 (HAPP-3) to determine the processes in error and will be used together with the Cycles Guidelines and Organizational Chart (Moore, 2015) to design a Cycle.


Target word selection, goal writing, and implementation into group therapy will be discussed.

Content Disclosure: This course focuses on Cycles for Phonology and other or similar programs will not be discussed. 


Learner Outcomes

  1. Explain the difference between Cycles for Phonology and Traditional Articulation approaches.

  2. Describe and list the primary patterns targeted in the Cycles Approach.

  3. List and explain why secondary patterns are not typically targeted in the Cycles Approach.

  4. Complete and score the Hodson Assessment of Phonological Processes-3 (HAPP-3).

  5. Design a Cycle based on the primary patterns using the HAPP-3 and the Cycles Guidelines and Organizational Chart.



Let's Hear It For /R/!


Do you HATE /r/? Wouldn’t it be great if you could LOVE it or at least like it?


Make this the year you MASTER /r/ therapy by learning to use Let’s Hear It For R!


This program is a structured, step-by-step approach for correcting the most difficult sound SLPs treat.


In this seminar, participants will learn how to establish initial /r/ and use it together with coarticulation and feedback to develop final and medial /r/.


The concept of approximations will be introduced and discrimination skills will be further developed using audio clips of students producing /r/ with and without coarticulation.


To aid in participant understanding, six videos will demonstrate the techniques and additional audio files will highlight the changes that can occur simply by using coarticulation.

Content Disclosure: This course focuses on Let's Hear It For R! and other or similar programs will not be discussed. 


Learner Outcomes

  1.  Identify the difference between consonantal /r/ and vocalic /r/ and which you should target first.

  2. List the order in which you should drill /r/ (consonantal and vocalic) and the percentages required at each level.

  3. Describe and demonstrate co-articulation and its application to vocalic /r/.
