Seven Sensory Strategies to Increase Artic-Therapy Success - Char Boshart, MA CCC-SLP

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

The mouth is the only body part that interacts with itself, meaningfully. And the two primary forms of that meaningful interaction (for speaking, chewing, and swallowing) are tactile and proprioceptive in nature.

Wouldn’t it be helpful for a child to be able to localize his front-tongue to elevate it purposefully and consistently for t, d, s, z, sh, zh, ch, j, and l, as well as for his back-tongue for the k, g, ng, and r sound?

This one-hour course demonstrates practical techniques to apply Sensory Assist Therapy to help generate the capability to do critical speech sound movements. The techniques are simple, yet powerful, and coordinate with the stimulation of speech sounds.

You no doubt already use visual and auditory sensory stimulation in your therapy, e.g. a mirror, demonstration of the sound, etc. In this video, you'll add other sensations: tactile, proprioception, and taste, and learn how to apply them and the benefits. Sensory Assist Therapy is an underused yet high effective technique to generate articulation competence.
