Sh Facilitative Contexts for Speech Therapy


Do you wish you had something extra to help elicit a clear /ʃ/ sound?  Have you ever wondered why children find making a clear /ʃ/ sound easier in some words?  

Our S Facilitative Contexts product will help you dig deeper into eliciting a clear /ʃ/ sound. This product explains why these word contexts give our best chance of eliciting a clear /ʃ/ sound in children, a screener, word checklists, therapy cards, and 5 high-trial practice sheets for the different facilitative word contexts.   

Use the facilitative environments as a step before traditional articulation or phonological /ʃ/ sound therapy approaches.  Children will feel confident, and you can lay a foundation for successful treatment. Save yourself time – everything is ready to be printed and used in your session!
