Articulation for Reading and Conversation {and Freebie}

Guess what? I’m getting a student speech therapist! Yes! Starting next week, I am very excited to be getting a student and…hopefully can provide a good school setting experience for her. I think I will have a lot to learn as well! Keep your ears open-you just might be hearing from her perspective on here.

I also have some great news for other speech therapists out there and it has to do with my newest (and most proud-of-to-date) product: Articulation for Reading and Conversation.

After months of work on this newest little big addition to my store, I am finally able to say it is done!
This is a perfect intervention program for those students who are able to say sounds at the word and sentence level but don’t transfer it when it comes to reading or conversation.


This incredible 101 page packet contains over 45 original reading prompts (created by me) that target common phonemes in the initial position of words. Each passage contains exactly 20 target words (with sounds in the initial position) for easy data collection.
Here’s how I’ve been using it:
1. Students begin by highlighting words beginning with their sound and read the passage.
2. Next, students track their own data using a bubble graph.
3. Last, students draw the story and use sounds in conversation while retelling the story.

Each story comes with one student copy and one therapist copy. The therapist copy provides space for you to track students’ progress as they read and speak.






 Here are the sounds included broken down:

Tips and Suggestions:
* I printed off the entire packet with multiple copies of the most frequently occurring sounds on my caseload. Placed in an easy-to-grab binder with labeled tabs makes intervention a snap.
* I only created initial sound prompts. However, most of the prompts do contain words with sounds in medial and final positions. For more advanced students, monitor progress in all positions of words.
* For younger students, I read the story to them and have them retell it and illustrate it using their good sounds.
* Can be used in a small group or individually when performing intervention
* Can be used as a screening tool to determine baseline data with students at the conversation level.
