Apraxia Packet for Early Sounds

I am so excited about this packet!  It's taken me a while to put together, but it's finally finished!  After completing the Apraxia Packet for Later Sounds, I got some great feedback from several therapists as to how they address apraxia in younger students.  I also had some awesome proofers for this packet that gave me some great suggestions (ahem Jenna!).  Check it out!

Here's what's included in the packet:
  • 9 Game boards to practice syllable and vowel combinations as well as rate of speech.  They target bilabials as well as alveolars.
  • Functional vocabulary cards for bilabials, alveolars, and multisyllabic words.

These cards can be used with the blank game board enclosed or using just the cards themselves.

  • There are also some wild cards that will make you put all your cards back!
  • Motor planning cards for the deletion of initial or final consonant cards targeting /p, b, m, t, d, n, f, l/.  These are phrases in which the first word ends with the same sound the next word begins with, making it easier to motor plan.  
  • Vowel/syllable drill cards
  • Carrier phrases to be used with the fish cards, helping with the planning of connected speech.
  • Pacing strips to give visual support to rate of speech.  My apraxic student tends to mumble a lot.  Having a visual really helps him with slowing his rate down.

Hope this packets helps some of your apraxic and severe articulation kids!  You can grab it at my TPT store HERE.   

What kind of goals do you target with your apraxic students?
