(Even if you've always struggled in the past!)
You want to help children learn the /r/ sound, but no one has taught you explicitly how.
You have a growing caseload of /r/ clients, but no guidance.
But most of all, you want a system for teaching that tricky articulation sound!
You thought that instructing /r/ would come naturally, but the reality is that both learning and teach /r/ is difficult!
After nearly 16 years of helping student interns and SLP assistants to teach the /r/ sound, I know that right now you are:
I know that at the moment you unclear on how to help your articulation students, but I want you to know that you can do this!
Introducing "Mastering R", a video and materials based course for SLPs who want to help their students master initial /r/.
★ Ten step by step video instructions for the SLP on how to teach initial /r/.
★ Ten video lessons for children on how to produce initial /r/.
★ Practice materials for in therapy at at home.
I've designed Mastering R so that the SLP and children can move along the ten step process at their own pace and with all the resources that are needed!
"I absolutely love this course! I have tried many different approaches to teaching /r/ with inconsistent results. I have many students working on /r/ this year and they often become discouraged when practicing this sound. My students have really enjoyed watching the videos and ALL of my students have made progress! I appreciate that the videos are straight forward, only a few minutes long, and explained in kid-friendly terms. The practice sheets have mouth/tongue visuals along with visuals for each /r/ word. I highly recommend this course to all SLPs and SLPAs!" (Happy Camper Speech)
"I can't say enough great things about this course. It provides a step-by-step process for your students with practice pages that reinforce each step. Several of my more stubborn /r/ clients have made notable progress through this process." (Roxanne)
I have the longest-running blog in the world for speech therapists just like you who want to help all children. I have spoken at national conferences and been featured multiple times in the ASHA Leader.
I created Mastering R after realizing that my graduate students and SLP assistants had no training in this sound. Although I had no previous systematic approach, I showed them how to help children with tongue placement and then move onto the next steps.
I want you to feel confident that you can can make a difference. I want you to have options for teaching different ways. I want you help students master /r/.
INCLUDED IN EACH OF THE TEN LESSONS:
1. Printables for practice in therapy and at home
2. A video for the SLP instructing them how to teach that lesson
3. A video for the students demonstrating that lesson's techniques
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
When does the course begin?
Being an SLP can be hard.
Speech pathologists are expected to do much more than they were trained for in graduate school. But you can do this. You can help your clients to master initial /r/!
