Are you needing some task box size articulation materials that covers all sounds in every position? Do you find that your students would really benefit from having the visual cue of their target sound on the very material that they are using? These Articulation Squares are a flexible addition to your therapy toolkit. They take up a small amount of room but have the opportunity for lots of repetitions and practice.
DOWNLOAD THIS RESOURCE IF YOU WANT:
➊ — A page with 48 speech sound targets (x12 initial, x12 medial, x12 final, x12 mixed)
➋ — Articulation materials that include visual-phonetic cues for elicitation support
➌ — To combine evidence-based practice and work across different positions at once
➍ — Organizational-friendly articulation materials that fit in a task box
One of the most effective ways to use Articulation Squares to get high repetition is to grab mini or little objects to place on or around each picture. It’s a wonderful motivator and reinforcement and can elicit fast-paced practice in a short amount of time. If you run RTI or 5-minute speech groups, this is a great addition.
Some hands-on ideas include play-dough smash, placing counters, beads, pom poms, blocks, LEGO pieces, mini erasers, small crystals, or aquarium stones on the pictures as you go. The black and white pages are great for hole punching, stamping, dabbing, coloring, and even cutting!

What SLP’s like you are saying:
❝ My clients have really loved putting different toys on these squares and then ‘earning’ them. They are a nice easy way to get some really quick productions of our targets.❞
❝ So versatile!! I can use this for multiple sessions, coloring, or using dotter and then the next time we might put burgers on the targets and play pop the pig. The options are endless.❞
❝ This is a perfect resource to use with any type of manipulative for the practice on the grid. You can get so creative with this one! My students love it.❞
