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.
DOWNLOAD THIS RESOURCE IF YOU WANT TO:
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)
