Do you need more speech therapy options for when you are trying to elicit speech sounds with your students? Are you looking to send some practice sheets home, or simply increase participation in that early phase of therapy? These NO PREP sheets are the perfect print-and-go addition for those times you are STUCK working in isolation, trying to elicit a target sound.
When to Use:
➊ — Traditional Articulation approach: Use in practice for when you are trying to elicit speech sounds. You may find that certain vowel sounds act in a facilitative context for the sound you are working on.
➋ — Phonological delays: If you are using a phonological approach and your child is NOT stimulable for one or more of the targets, these sheets can be used in pre-practice.
➌ — Childhood Apraxia of Speech: The vowel strips at the bottom of each worksheet can allow you to work at the syllable level using CV, VC, or VCV combinations.
This pack targets nine later developing sounds and includes 10 half-sized worksheets per sound. You can do all sorts of crafts and drills (coloring, stamping, dabbing, painting, use mini erasers, etc.) while getting high repetitions. By fitting two sheets to a page, you can do one worksheet in therapy, and have the second completed for homework.

Explaining the worksheets:
Each page has a picture that references the sound (in isolation) for example, “The frog likes to hop across the lily pad. For every correct ‘l’ sound, color in a lily pad.” There are 20 pictures to color, so a minimum of 20 opportunities to practice the sound. You can always increase this by using dice or asking for 5 repetitions before they say the sound. The VOWEL STRIPS at the bottom of the page allow you to easily work at either the isolation or syllable level. You can also see whether specific vowels in different positions facilitate the target consonant.
I love making creative resources that push kids to get in tons of practice while being fun and motivating.
