This vibrant program for the remediation of /r/, /r/ blends, and vocalic /r/ gets results with motivating, systematic lessons; easy measures of progress; hefty amounts of practice materials; and time-saving assessment tools.

The programmed approach combines the best features from the Modified Cycles Approach (Hodson & Paden, 1990), the Sensory Motor Approach (McDonald, 1964), and Motor Learning Theory (Skelton, 2004) to help students master all the variants of /r/ and vocalic /r/ production. Use it for pull out sessions and to meet the needs of groups with varying levels of competency.

The program includes:

  • Four assessment tools for initial /r/, initial /r/ blends, vocalic /r/ at word level, and a reading assessment

    • step-by-step instructions and prompts

  • establishment
  • word level
  • sentence completion
