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.
Explain the difference between Cycles for Phonology and Traditional Articulation approaches.
Describe and list the primary patterns targeted in the Cycles Approach.
List and explain why secondary patterns are not typically targeted in the Cycles Approach.
Complete and score the Hodson Assessment of Phonological Processes-3 (HAPP-3).
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.
Step 1: Learn how to establish Initial /r/ with nonsense words AVOID /er/
Step 2: Drilling of initial /r/ using Webber’s Articulation Drill book or similar books.
Step 3: Drilling of initial /r/ at the phrase and sentence level
Step 4: Coarticulation
Step 5: Drop coarticulation and move on to final /r/ phrases and sentences
Step 6: Medial /r/--Just a formality
Step 7: Reading level
Step 8: R-blends if needed
Step 9: Dismissal
