  1. Tania S.

    AMAZING. It has been difficult to find beautifully designed and easy to use AUSTRALIAN resources for vowels. Thank you for such a comprehensive package. My clients have loved engaging with them. It has been a significant time saver and worth every cent! I highly recommend any of AISP resources to Australian Speech Pathologists.

  2. Sue W.

    Another fabulous resource by Adventures in Speech Pathology. These cards have been perfect to contrast and clean up some of those vowel distortions that occasionally pop up in the caseload. Definitely a must have in the resource cupboard.

  3. Alison C.

    I like that these vowel cards represent the Australian vowel sounds. I’ve found them particularly beneficial for my students with suspected CAS.

  4. Emily B.

    I love these visuals and how many pictures there are for each vowel sound. I used adventures in speech pathology vowel chart initially and then used this for specific vowels to increase trials.
