Articulation Stations: See it! Say it! Sort it!

My Students

My district is rural and primarily a low income population. Like most districts, we are experiencing constant budget cuts to both materials and to staffing which greatly impacts my students' success.

My students are typically between the ages of 3-9 and all have speech and language impairments.

Some simply have speech sound errors, some have difficulty expressing themselves, some struggle with understanding language and some are on the Autism Spectrum. All of these issues have a significant impact on their success within the classroom.

My Project

My students vary in age from 3-9 and all have speech and language deficits. Not only does this make communicating difficult, but it highly impacts their success in reading and writing. They often pronounce words incorrectly and then transcribe them incorrectly into their classroom work. Many students struggle with hearing the difference between some of their sounds, particularly vowels.

Due to the range in severity of my students disorders and their need to learn in a non-traditional manner, they need more "hands on" ways of learning than their traditional peers.

The mirrors will help my students see what their own articulators are doing when they try to copy a model. Giving them cards and dry erase markers that I already have paired with different objects to feel and sort will also provide many different modes of learning.

Speech Pathologists typically do not have full sized classrooms so it is important to keep materials in organized containers and storage kits due to constant traveling from building to building and due to working in small spaces.
