The Complexity Approach for Speech Therapy



This Complexity Approach is an intervention for children with phonological impairments. It targets later developing and complex clusters (vs. earlier developing sounds) as research has shown that this can facilitate a greater system-wide change. It is not the ONLY approach out there, so consider the needs of your caseload.

❶ — Have an evidence-based resource for an intervention that you may not have heard about.
❷ — Understand how to choose targets applying the complexity principles
❸ — Have colorful cards and black & white homework practice sheets containing complex 2 and 3-element clusters
❹ — Use a Consonant Cluster Probe (digital & print included) to help you informally assess a child’s cluster inventory
❺ — Have reference charts for the sonority sequencing principle, implicational universals for target selection, complexity approach therapy steps, and evidence-based rationales


✅ — Covers 10 clusters (3-element: /skr/, /spr/, /str/, /spl/ and /skw/ and 2-element: /fl/, /fr/, /sl/, /shr/ and /thr/.)
✅ — Includes a Consonant Cluster Probe (digital & print) to help you get a cluster inventory
✅ — Contains easy-to-understand charts and diagrams explaining complexity concepts (e.g., sonority sequencing principle, therapy steps, target selection) to help you feel more confident with using the approach
✅ — ARTICULATION CARDS: Both color and black & white cards are included. There are 9 words per complex cluster (x18 for /str/), so a total of 100 cards
✅ — WORDS FOR HOME PRACTICE: Two mini pages to send for home practice (x80 practice trials/page)
✅ — WORD PRACTICE: Large pictures with high practice check boxes (x90 practice trials/page).
✅ — WORD LISTS: Easy to send home word lists (x180 & x150 practice trials/page) ✅ — ROLL & SAY: Use a dice to play this game (x36 practice trials/page)
✅ — SAY & FIND: Fun loaded scene for practice (x90 practice trials per page)
