Play Based Articulation Sheets – EARLY SOUNDS



Not all children are suitable for “drill-play” therapy activities using articulation cards. These idea-filled sheets featuring early developing sounds can support the SLP to engage in more play-based therapy with a list of words and activities featuring the target sound they are working on.

If you’ve ever struggled to think up of “words on the spot”, these sheets can be an easy reference to help guide, shape, and plan your speech therapy session.

Each page is organized around different language themes:
Verbs – a page full of actions to use in play (e.g., fall, fill, feed, feel, find)
Nouns – a page featuring names, things, and places (e.g., face, feet, photo, food)
Adjectives – a page filled with describing activities (e.g., funny, fast, far)

Each page contains approximately 25-word targets, equaling about 75 target words to use in play for each sound. The word lists also contain the target sound in the initial and final positions.

❶ — Target speech sounds in a more naturalistic, play-based environment
❷ — Incorporate speech and language goals in your session or in mixed groups and preschool programs
❸ — Use focused stimulation and auditory bombardment
❹ — Help set up a naturalistic play setting for you to assess the target sounds in conversation
❺ — Support families to complete home practice using everyday play tasks

These sheets can be particularly useful for early intervention and preschool-aged children with speech and/or language goals.
