SLPs often need to create word lists for their clients/students. Commercial products often do not consider “competing sounds”, for example, alveolars that are interjected into bilabial card sets such as “bus” and “caterpillar”. With expertise in orofacial myofunctional, muscle based and motor speech disorders, Robyn will explore various articulation products and why they work for specific populations. Concepts just as jaw grading, structural challenges and coarticulation will be discussed as driving factors for choosing the best words to facilitate progress.
- Participants will be able to list at least three articulation materials that consider muscle and/or motor function.
- Participants will be able to explain why jaw grading is an important factor in articulation therapy.
- Participants will be able to list at least two reasons why word drills may be too challenging for a client/student.
