Rocking Talkers

This summer articulation group will aim to improve your child’s speech sound production of the “R” sound. Each week we will strengthen our speech sound skills by learning how to correctly produce the R sound and differentiate sounds by training the ears to hear the sounds correctly. Our group-based activities will be a fun way to increase overall awareness of correct and incorrect sounds. This group will also strengthen phonological awareness skills which will support literacy and pre-reading. Come join us for a fun summer of correcting sounds!
