Although I focus a lot of my content on AAC and GLP, I also LOVE working with children with speech sound difficulties, including articulation difficulties.
Since taking the Play-based Speech Therapy Course by @anna.dee.slp and @wordsmatterslp, my articulation sessions have become mostly play-based and I have noticed increased engagement and motivation, which has led to increased success (don't you learn better too when you're enjoying it?!).
I also learned that articulation therapy can be *more* successful by including fewer targets, including multiple target sounds in one activity, and using targets and activities that have more carry-over to the child's everyday life. Not to mention how movement can help regulate kids while learning!
