Reinforcing Home Activities: Program for Articulation Improvement. Third Edition.
Beveridge-Wavering, Agnes; Seibert-Shook, Mavis
Intended to aid speech-language pathologists in providing sequential, meaningful take-home assignments for articulation-impaired elementary school students, this book lists 95 activities which promote parent involvement in articulation-task learning. Each of the 95 activities (65 for non-readers and 34 for readers) is written on a slip which children take home and parents sign when the task is completed. Many of the activities involve parents in such ways as children telling parents stories using a certain sound, or parents reading words with certain sounds that children must use correctly in a full sentence. The major goal of the activities is to bring about the consistent correct use of specific sounds in speech. A section with supplementary materials contains a letter to the parents, an accomplishment chart, speech contracts, good work awards, teacher evaluation forms, a speech diploma, and bulletin board suggestions.
