Using the Initial Teaching Alphabet to Improve Articulation. Children's Workbook and Index for Parents.
Goldman, Ronald; And Others
Designed to enable parents to help preschool, speech handicapped children enrolled in a program of speech correction by using materials based on the Initial Teaching Alphabet (ITA), these activities correlate with those used in therapy. A short period of time (15 to 20 minutes), a relaxed atmosphere, a regular schedule, and a quiet, non-distracting atmosphere are suggested for the activities. Pages of the child's manual are coded; the manual for parents replicates this material and provides an index to the code with instructions to be interpreted to the child. Ten activities focus on auditory discrimination, three on visual discrimination, 13 on sequencing, 20 on synthesis, 10 on analysis, and five on rhyming. (RP)
