Do you find it hard to explain to parents and teachers WHAT you’ll be doing in speech therapy and WHY? Would clear and easy-to-understand handouts that explain phonological therapy approaches such as minimal pairs, cycles, and multiple oppositions help? Each page of these handouts introduces the idea that there are various phonological interventions that we can choose so we try to match the right approach to our students.
Confidently explain your speech therapy intervention
Simple, parent-friendly explanations about what you will be doing in speech therapy
Inform and educate parents, caregivers, and teachers
Provide information at IEP meetings and during therapy sessions
Evidence-based information about phonological interventions
I have listed the references (journal articles and texts) that I used to create this resource in the packet and you might find it useful to further your knowledge in particular interventions.
“I love the evidence-based nature of this resource.”
“There is so much information included in this resource! I love that the approaches are explained in ways that teachers and parents can understand.”
“I find even with simplifying my explanation of the approaches to parents, they still need written information to help cement it all.”
“It’s obvious SO MUCH RESEARCH went into this! These handouts are such a nice way to show families *exactly* what we’re doing in therapy.”
