Have you ever wanted to implement the cycles approach, but you’re just confused about what the approach is? Maybe you struggle to plan and set up your cycle and just need trustworthy target selection tips and a breakdown of the steps? Or perhaps you just have a lot of questions (and not a lot of time!) that you can’t easily find in textbooks and journal articles?

Well, we take the confusion out of the cycles approach so that you can understand and implement it confidently!

The Cycles Approach Handbook is a comprehensive guide written by practicing speech-language pathologists Rebecca Reinking and Amy Graham. Basically, it’s the reference material we wish we would have had when we graduated! We use SLP-friendly explanations to break down the approach in a simple, easy-to-understand way so that you can comfortably implement the cycles approach with your students tomorrow.

Combining real-life clinical experience working with children who have speech sound disorders with the latest evidence base, the handbook supports SLPs to deliver the cycles approach correctly, practically, and with high fidelity!

The Cycles Approach Handbook contains the following chapters:

➊ — Understanding the cycles approach
➋ — Planning cycles therapy
➌ — Implementing cycles therapy
➍ — Activities for cycles therapy
➎ — Data and generalization
➏ — Auditory stimulation word lists

You’ll appreciate the quick-reference pages such as “who is suitable for cycles?” and “how long is a cycle?”. And you’ll LOVE the primary patterns chart and checklists, not to mention a case study, cycles planning sheet, and in-depth do’s and don’ts when it comes to choosing word targets for each pattern!

    This handbook has been an absolute lifesaver for me this year! I have several preschoolers with many phonological errors and the instructions and formatting of this handbook has made it so easy to follow! I also wanted to add that AISP has amazing customer service and when I ran into a challenge downloading my handbook they were able to help me resolve the issue the same day – and they are on the other side of the world!
