This new book is a resource for clinicians, students, and academics working with students whose speech contains errors affecting [th] (voiced theta), [th] (unvoiced theta), [s], [z], [l], Vocalic [r], [r], [sh], or [ts]. These nine sounds typically are the last acquired by English speaking children, and are the sounds most likely to challenge school-aged students and non-native English speakers, both children and adults. It fill the need for a resource that a student or clinician can turn to when treating a school-aged student or non-native English speaker who experiences difficulties with one or more late acquired sound.
Resources for each late acquired sound include: Technical and non-technical definitions; Age of acquisition; Common errors; Key phonetic environments; Useful metaphors; Touch cues; Initial screening tests; Stimulability tests; Demonstrations of place, manner, and voicing; Phonetic placement and shaping techniques; Speech exercises; Language awareness and speech activities; List of words divided by phonetic and word environments; Minimal pairs.
Included is a free CD with reproducible "cheat sheets," exercises, and word lists for clinical use. Included in these materials are: 24 different demonstrations of place, manner, and voicing; 53 phonetic placement and shaping techniques; different types of speech exercises; 35 language awareness and speech activities; over 4,000 words divided by phonetic and word environments; over 2,200 minimal pairs.
