Fronting /k/ and /g/ Packet using the Cycles Approach - FREE until Friday!

Recently there's been a lot of talk about the Cycles Approach when I'm going to my monthly Speech meetings. I'm always interested to hear about articulation/phonology techniques, no matter how new or classic they may be.

The Cycles Approach was one of those things we breezed over in graduate school. I knew the basics, but was unsure how to implement it. Recently I added a preK student to my caseload, and thought this might be the best approach to remediate the fronting that was going on.

I created this packet to try to make the approach easy, kid-friendly, and cohesive. Since the approach follows such a structured schedule during a session, I thought it would be great to make them print-n-practice style items. The auditory bombardment words can be hole punched and put onto a binder ring, and the printable black and white practice sheets make it simple to use both in therapy and as homework.

My favorite part about this packet is the auditory bombardment cariboo cards! I'm really all about using the cariboo game in therapy, as it's just so rewarding and fun! Print, cut, and slip these cards in to use identification and auditory bombardment. Even use it as a way to practice saying the sounds once you are up to that stage!

Winter Adapted Book FREEBIE!

With the crazy weather here in NY (see house pic nightmare of snow!) I wanted to share my adapted free book for winter clothing! This will be one of those short, late-night posts, so I apologize! I wanted to make sure this one got out to you guys!

I created this for use with an AAC device, but it really can be utilized for so much more! I've also used this activity to target vocabulary with an ESL student, following directions with a student targeting auditory comprehension, and as an introduction to the topic of winter!

The options are endless! Plus, I wanted to make this a freebie since I know I have been using tons of awesome freebies on TpT from fellow bloggers - gotta give back!

Just a quick check-in before I wander off into Sunday chili and sweatpants! I wanted to share this following directions packet I've been using for the month of October.

This packet is four pages, black and white, and FREE! It includes following 1 and 2 step directions, following varied directions, and following conditional directions. All the sheets are halloween themed and of course black and white for low-ink usage! Check out this scarily fun packet HERE on TpT! 

FREE Parent Handout for "Self-Talk" and "Parallel Talk"!

This summer I pledged that I would work with more of the little little guys in my private practice - early intervention and preschool age. I love this age group and really missed working with them (currently I see preK through second grade in a school setting). Working in a home-based environment is incredible because of all of the great parent-training we get to do. I love being able to explain and show exactly what I'm doing and the strategies I'm using.

As all SLPs know, with this age group we are doing a lot of self and parallel talk. Sometimes I leave my half-hour sessions out of breath! Of course, talking is never an issue for an SLP!! I find that my parents are talking to their child, however their language needs to be modified, or they need to present things differently (i.e., giving options to elicit more language vs. yes/no questions).

I created this parent handout to familiarize my parents with what I'm doing and to emphasize effective carryover. I like to say …
