Use these stimulus cards for speech therapy, phonics practice, and for early readers! Each card has cues to help with oral motor accuracy – both jaw height and lip shape. In this resource, I am sharing with you my knowledge as a PROMPT Bridging trained therapist. I have designed the cards to make it easy for your student to understand and even easier for you to implement.



→ Please note: There may be some overlap in stimulus words in the Dipthong Cards and the long vowels included in Vowel Cards resource. I will do my best to give you variety!



○ Each card has verbal cues on the top right corner. I find that these cues for appropriate jaw height and lip shape are typically all that is needed to correct vowel distortions. The cues are further explained in the download.


○ Every card has: word, picture, IPA vowel symbol, cues for jaw height and lip shape

○ Color AND black & white version of every card

○ 18 stimulus cards each for:

  • “OU” (as in “couch”)
  • “AI” (as in “eye”)
  • “OI” (as in “boy”)
  • “EI” (as in “day”)
  • Y words
  • W words

○ 6 bonus cards for words containing 3 separate vowel shapes (ex: “wow”)


○ For no prep / no print : pull the pdf up on your device

○ Print and/or laminate (either the full page for a “smash mat” variation or as individual cards)
