Why are the same set of pictures for a target sound used over and over again on the “One-Minute Articulation” app?  Why are the same phrases and sentences used repeatedly also?
In order to optimize practice time using the “High-Frequency, Short Duration” model type, a set of words are used that can easily be placed into a phrase or sentence while still making sense to the child. Being able to use the same words, phrases and sentences increases a child’s speed which results in more practices in a short period of time. The only way to change a speech pattern is through a lot of practice so this type of repetition makes the “One-Minute Articulation” app highly effective which is our goal.

We “power-pack” each phrase and sentence with target sounds in the correct position to maximize the number of practices in each turn. We have found that it is not necessary for a child to practice a lot of different words, rather it is most important for a child to practice correct placement in order for a target sound to transfer to other words, phrases, sentences and conversational speech. Another added benefit of using the same words, phrases and sentences is that the “One-Minute Articulation” app can successfully be used with very young children who cannot read.

How can one activity work on 11 different sounds?
Each activity comes with a “High Frequency Speech Activity Card”. This speech card has 11 different sentences written out for a Speech-Language Pathologist, parent or teacher to use with multiple children or the same child. Each of the 11 different sentences focus on a different target sound but each of the sentences corresponds with the same activity. So, one activity works on 11 different sounds!

How can each activity work with every child?
Each speech activity focuses on articulation AND language skills while using the SAME activity! Every activity comes with a complete therapy plan which includes a “High-Frequency Articulation Card” that targets 11 of the most common mis-articulated sounds and “Language-Centered Training Cards” which outline 5-10 language-based activities you can use in a weekly study or as you focus on specific language concept skills. So, there is something for every child to work on in each activity. 

What is a “High-frequency, Short-duration” activity? How does a Speech Solution activity fit this model type?
A “High-frequency, Short-duration” activity is designed to elicit a high number of responses from a child in a short amount of time. A child needs as many repetitions as possible to establish correct and consistent production of sounds. This same theory applies to children learning language concepts. A child needs as many opportunities to practice putting phrases and sentences together as possible in order to increase language skills. The Speech Solution follows this service delivery model by providing a Speech-Language Pathologist, parent or teacher with a “High-frequency Speech Activity Card” which focuses on 11 different target sounds, giving a child a short intensive “drill” session by repeating words, phrases and sentences that apply to a fun, interactive, purposeful activity. The speech card also focuses on providing children with language delays to form as many responses as possible by having them repeat meaningful phrases and sentences before taking a turn in the activity or to concentrate on a specific language concept by following the outline on the "Language-Centered Training cards."

Can a parent or teacher use a Speech Solution activity or are they designed for a Speech-Language Pathologist only?
The Speech Solution activities maximize a Speech-Language Pathologists therapy time with a child however, The Speech Solution activities are designed for a parent and teacher to use also as they supplement speech practice at home or in the classroom. Each activity supplies a parent or teacher with instructions, an outlined articulation speech card, language-centered training cards and all of the visual aids needed to carry out a fun, but highly effective, speech activity within minutes. Many parents who do not have access to speech therapy have successfully used The Speech Solution activities to change their child’s speech patterns.

What do I have to do in order to have a Speech Solution activity ready for use?
After downloading your activity packet, laminate the pictures and then cut them out. It is that simple! Occasionally, there are a few specific assembly instructions with certain activities, but it is minimal.

Do you have any Speech Solution holiday activities?
Yes! We have Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter activities.

The videos will explain The Speech Solution program, teach you how to use a “High-Frequency" speech activity card, and show you how to use the same activity for different speech and language goals and groups of children. You can also find the The Speech Solution on YoutubeYoutube, Instagramand Facebook. There are several instructional vidoes expalining The Speech Solution's unique and innovatiove techniques along with demonstrations sessions showing the program being used.

How many Speech Solution activities do I need each week to keep a child motivated and interested in practicing their speech sounds and language skills?
Usually 2-3 activities a week will keep a child interested in practicing his or her speech skills. If you are a Speech-Language Pathologist use one activity for the different caseloads you have on Monday and Tuesday, then a new activity for your Wednesday and Thursday caseloads. Review your favorite activity on Friday. If you are a parent, use one activity on Monday and a new one on Tuesday. Then repeat the same activities again on Wednesday and Thursday. Use Friday as a review day by pulling a previously purchased activity from your file and using it. The activities are fun and interactive, so children rarely tire of doing them. If you are a teacher, use an activity that goes with the theme or topic you are focusing on for the week. Our weekly "Language-Centered Training Card" allows you to use the same activity all week by following the daily activity outlined for Monday through Friday. 

Can I use the Speech Solution activities with a child who has autism?
Absolutely! The Speech Solution activities are perfect for a child who has autism because they offer numerous opportunities to practice forming meaningful sentences which have purpose and real-life application. The large variety of activities build vocabulary, teach language skills, and offer opportunities to practice social skills in a fun, interactive setting.

Can I use the Speech Solution activities with a non-verbal child?
Yes! The Speech Solution activities have proven to be very successful when used with children who are non-verbal. A child can use sign-language for the outlined sentences on the speech card. Each activity gives the child an opportunity to build communicative power and gain a greater desire to express themselves. If a child uses an assisted technology device, it is easy to create a file on their device by taking pictures of the illustrations included in the download and using them in an activity.  Their devices become a powerful tool as they use them with purpose to carry out an activity.

Will you be offering more Speech Solution activities?
Yes! We will continue to create new activities that are interesting and motivating to children. You can look forward to finding additional speech activities in the shopping cart on a regular basis. We know that new activities and learning experiences every week increase a child’s desire to keep practicing speech sounds and language skills so our goal at The Speech Solution is to provide you with a large variety of activities to choose from.

Do I need to use a professional printer to print my downloads?
