Need to get R in other words?

So you finally have the R sound but gosh darn it… getting it in any other form or word is TOUGH. R puzzles are the perfect tool for visual and tactile learners. They can finally (and literally) see that their R fits into EVER R word… no matter the form! Students love putting the puzzles together (much more engaging than flash cards) and find it so helpful.

Need to keep sessions productive?

Even if your student (or students!) doesn’t have a beautiful, crisp R sound yet… don’t stress. You can stay productive in therapy AND maintain your sanity by incorporating phonology. Not only will you be laying the groundwork for generalization once that R finally comes in… but you will feel good about the services you are providing.

Need to speed up the R?

Need to generalize R?

R therapy can take a while and it can get stale. It’s always good to have a variety of materials on hand – bonus points for ones that bring giggles.

It also, of course, has some silly tongue twisters to challenge your students who are working on generalization!
