THE PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT PROGRAM BOOK
This book is a list of sounds in each position of words, phrases, and sentences. It is used as a Precision Teaching tool to allow students to make progress against their own data. The overall goal is to get the students to automatically produce their speech sounds correctly in sentences.
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT PROGRAM
BETTER THAN ANYTHING ELSE
This program uses a drill-type instruction. The students are bombarded with their sounds and eventually, through drill, they become automatic with producing the correct sounds.
Each sound is practiced through short timings during each speech therapy session. Can you believe it? Working on all of the speech sounds during one speech session? Making progress by timing the sounds for one minute or less each day? It may sound unbelievable, but it’s true!!
I believe in practicing speech sounds every day or several times per week, as in: “Practice Makes Perfect!” Hence the name of the program.
Combined with the use of the Standard Celeration chart, you can see progress in a matter of days!
“Each September, Michele is assigned a large number of predominately primary school students who have speech and language deficits. By Christmas break, she has successfully dismissed half of these students back to their teachers because they no longer need her care!”
