Word lists for therapy

Please see the manual on how to use these word lists in therapy. We have provided example words in 2 and 3 syllable forms and accompanying therapy resource materials (cards, powerpoint displays and data sheets). You can use these for your client without any changes IF they need the same phonemes BUT if they need to work on different phonemes you can modify them. One of the easiest ways to do this is by using the Microsoft Word/ Powerpoint "replace" function.

Therapy data sheets

These are modified versions of the data sheets we used in the research. You need to populate it with the words you have selected for each child. Please feel free to modify the forms as you need to but remember that systematic data collection is really important to step up and step down your goal hierarchy.
