SKU #SC-815



Ages: 3 and up

Author: Rachele Ellsworth

Speech Corner—Cycles Approach Cases Instruction Manual was designed to assist speech-language pathologists (and assistants) in implementing the Cycles Approach using the Speech Corner—Cycles Approach Cases. (This manual is already included with item SC-810). However, many SLPs have asked that we sell it individually. This is for those who want to implement the cycles approach, but don’t need the word cards/titles, auditory bombardment cards, or motivators that are included in the cases. Maybe you want to implement this approach but are confused about what the approach is. Or if you are a little rusty on how to plan and set up your therapy sessions. This manual will help the busy SLP with target selection tips and how to implement the steps in a straightforward manner.  This approach is designed to improve the development of intelligible speech patterns in children with severe-to-profound expressive phonological impairments. This is a quick 48-page manual that gives you everything you need to know to implement the cycles approach with confidence and ease. It is full of easy-to-understand explanations, tables, forms, and homework sheets to make your life easier.
