If you are an SLP, then you know ALLLLL about the letter R. It is typically one of the last sounds to be mastered by children, and it is a common reason that students are referred for sessions with an SLP.
So, if you feel like you know everything there is to know about teaching this letter sound, then this is the episode for you. My guest, Lindsey Hockel, is a licensed SLP practicing in a private pediatric clinic. She is also the creator of SpeechyThings – a resource site for SLPs with an entire section devoted to the letter R sound.
In this fun episode, Lindsey and I chat about new ways to work with students on the R sound that you are sure to enjoy.
In This Episode You’ll Discover:
- What to do for a student who makes progress and then regresses
- Why it’s ok to scare children sometimes
- How to teach using a bunched “R” and a retroflexed “R” method
- The 3 steps to teaching “R”
- Ways to motivate a student to work hard
- Unique ways to give a student one-on-one attention
- How to incorporate what’s important to them into your lesson
- Carryover tips for continuing progress outside the lesson
