Target 6 sounds simultaneously
during group therapy!

_________________________

 

This motivating program was developed by a speech-language pathologist seeking an easy and creative way to target multiple sounds simultaneously in a group setting. Here’s how it works. This set includes six books of scripts with each book focusing on one target sound: /R, S, L, Sh, Ch, Th/. As you begin your therapy session, simply grab the books focusing on the sounds you would like to target with each student. Ask students to open their books to the same page and take turns reading their lines aloud.

All six articulation books contain matching plays and pagination. The only variation between them is the lines focusing on different speech sounds! For example, if your student Ryan is working on /r/, Sally on /s/ and Logan on /l/, give each of them the book focusing on their respective speech sound. Next, ask them to find the play I’m Sorry in their books. While Ryan, Sally and Logan all have the same play about apologizing for silly mistakes in each of their books, each book has different lines targeting their specific sound. As students take turns reading aloud their own lines, they are performing in the play together. Ages 9-15 years old or a 4th Grade reading level.   

    • Curriculum Supporting Material.
    • Features playfully illustrated, no-preparation play scripts targeting R, S, L, Sh, Ch, Th.
    • Each book contains ten 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.



         HOW IT WORKS:


EACH BOOK TARGETS A SPECIFIC SOUND.


STUDENTS SELECT THE BOOK FEATURING THEIR TARGET SOUND.


EACH STUDENT OPENS HIS OR HER BOOK TO THE SAME PAGE. PAGE 15 IN THIS EXAMPLE "I NEED ADVICE".



PAGE 15 WILL FEATURE THE SAME THEME ("I NEED ADVICE") IN ALL 6 BOOKS, WHILE THE SCRIPT LINES IN EACH BOOK ARE UNIQUE TO THAT BOOK'S TARGET SOUND.


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.



ARTICULATION THEATRE IS MOTIVATING, EFFECTIVE AND FUN!

Customer Reviews:

Articulation Theatre Books were developed by a Speech-Language Pathologist seeking a creative way to help her students become more motivated to practice articulation targets and work together as a group despite having different articulation objectives.

This product was field-tested by multiple school-based Speech-Language Pathologists who found it to be an effective and motivating means for students to improve their articulation skills.


"My students LOVE Articulation Theatre Books!"K. Schafnitt, SLP  (Dec. 2015)


"My students made measurable progress due to their increased motivation to practice scenes. Their frustration deceased and liveliness increased as they acted out these entertaining plays. As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I found the books' organization, use of colors to target sounds, ease of use for group therapy and motivating humor to be extremely helpful."Colleen Cull, MS, CCC-SLP   8/4/2015


"My students became jovial and eager to engage in the lesson. This atmosphere was helpful in therapy to encourage them to self-monitor. They continue to maintain the progress made, which is a testament to the increased motivation they experienced when using this thoughtfully organized, fun and motivating program."Patricia Amodei, MS, CCC-SLP   8/3/2015


"The performance at the end of the intervention was a way for my students to work towards a goal and have a product (i.e. performance) to highlight their work. The Articulation Theatre Books were instrumental in helping my students achieve their goals."Jennifer E. Pohl, MS, CCC-SLP   8/2/2015
