Treat childhood apraxia of speech with appealing preschool pictures and a precise, organized hierarchy of word selections and prompts.

This 240-card set has an evidence-based progression, moving from basic syllable sequences to multisyllabic word production in sentences. The stimuli are phonetically-controlled which lets you introduce one phonemic variable at a time. Captivating art and age-appropriate vocabulary hold youngsters' attention.

The nine sections of stimuli are carefully arranged to give a precise progression of demand on the child's motor planning skills:

  • VC/CV (bee, up)
  • CVCno change in consonant (bib, nine)
  • CVCchange in consonant but not place (mop, sun)
  • CVCchange in consonant and place (bed, soap)
  • CVCVno change in consonant or vowel (no-no, cocoa)
  • CVCVchange in vowel but not consonant (baby, cookie)
  • CVCVchange in consonant and vowel (bunny, coffee)
  • CVCVC (lemon, carrot)
  • Multisyllabic (banana, fingernail)

A five-level cueing hierarchy on each card supports the progression of demand on motor planning. Move your student through all five cueing levels as his motor-planning skills improve.

Cueing hierarchy for sections 1 through 7:

  • Cloze sentence: My pants are too [loose].
  • Supply the rhyming word: Goose rhymes with [loose].
  • Answer a wh- question: What is the opposite of tight? loose
  • Say the target word three times: loose, loose, loose
  • Repeat a sentence that contains the target word: Say, "My shoe is loose."
