Cycles For Phonology and Reduplicated Syllable Therapy
Cycles for Phonology focused on patterns instead of individual sounds resulting in efficient generalization of targets, drastically reducing therapy time for children with phonological delays. The instructor took participants through an overview of delivery and scoring of the HAPP-3 and provided strategies to use in therapy sessions tomorrow.
For children with only a few early initial consonants and vowels, participants learned how to use consonant-vowel (CV) combinations to increase consonant inventory by expanding imitation to two and three syllables using reduplication. The use of early developing sounds facilitated increases in both speech and language skills while giving children confidence to try new sounds.
