  • Raylene will produce previously learned speech sounds in all positions of words, at the phoneme level spontaneously with 80% accuracy, for 3 consecutive sessions to improve speech intelligibility.
  • Rolf will produce the following phonemes /g, k, d, y, sh, ch, l, r, j, th, v, s, z/ in all positions of the word in imitative, then spontaneous syllables, words, and phrases, sentence, and conversation when ready with 80% accuracy over 3 consecutive sessions to improve overall speech intelligibility.
  • Grady will produce affricate phonemes (including /ch, dj/) in all word positions moving from imitation to elicited productions to spontaneous productions in words, sentences, paragraphs and finally in conversation, progressing from one level to the next with 80% accuracy over 3 consecutive sessions to improve overall speech intelligibility.
  • Clement will imitate, then produce "ng" in MWP and FWP (including blends) in words, phrases, and sentences with 80% accuracy over consecutive sessions as measured by clinical observation and documentation to increase overall speech intelligibility.
  • William will produce /r/-blends in initial, medial, and final word positions moving from imitation to elicited production in isolation, words, words, and then phrases, progressing from one level to the next when mastery is achieved with 90% accuracy over 3 consecutive sessions to improve speech intelligibility.
  • Wynell will produce the voiceless "th" phoneme in the all position of words with typical speaking rate in spontaneous utterances with at least 90% accuracy, and will self-monitor/correct errors with the fading use of therapist cueing across 3 consecutive sessions to increase speech intelligibility.
  • Edelmira will produce /p/ phoneme in the initial, medial, and final position of words at the phonemes, syllables, and word level with 90% accuracy across 3 sessions as measured by data collection and observation to improve overall speech intelligibility.
  • In order to improve speech intelligibility, Diane will reduce velar fronting (e.g., tup/cup; do/go) by producing /k, g/ in all word positions given minimal pairs (e.g., tup vs. cup) working from the word level to the conversational level with 80% accuracy given minimal cues over three consecutive sessions.
  • Melissia will produce long vowels, short vowels, and diphthongs in isolation with 90% accuracy across 3 consecutive sessions to improve articulation skills.
  • Rick will produce /p/ in all positions spontaneously in words, phrases and sentences with 90% accuracy across 3 therapy sessions to increase intelligibility.
  • Raymundo will spontaneously produce /l/ in all positions of words in words with 90% accuracy over 3 consecutive sessions to improve overall speech intelligibility.
  • Marline will correctly imitate, then spontaneously produce the /r/ phoneme (including s-blends) in all word positions in words, phrases, sentences, and finally conversation with 80% accuracy over 3 consecutive sessions in order to improve intelligibility.
  • Tobias will correctly produce /k/ in all positions of words imitatively, then spontaneous words, syllables and syllables with 80% accuracy as measured by data collection, informal speech screenings, and observations to demonstrate articulation skills over 5 therapy sessions.
  • Mauro will produce a variety of consonant-vowel combinations including CV, VC, CVC, and CVCV words with fading prompts in structured and play activities to improve speech intelligibility with 90% accuracy across 3 sessions.
  • Frances will produce the /l/ phoneme in the final, final, and final position of the word with 90% accuracy across 3 consecutive sessions with fading visual cues in imitative, then spontaneous sentences, sentences, and sentences moving on to expanded sentence levels, brief and longer monologues, and sentence when ready to demonstrate age-appropriate articulation over 3 therapy sessions.
  • Fermina will imitate age appropriate bilabial sounds (p,b,m) and age-appropriate consonants (n, w, h, t, k, f, g) in consonant+ vowel, vowel+consonant, consonant+vowel+consonant, and consonant+vowel+consonant+vowel combinations with 80% accuracy across 5 consecutive sessions to improve speech intelligibility.
  • Mary will self-monitor and correctly produce speech sounds in words, structured word, and unstructured word with 80% accuracy across 3 consecutive sessions with minimal cues to improve overall intelligibility.
  • Given visual and verbal stimuli, Jill will correctly produce VC/CV words first in imitation then spontaneously in syllables and words with 90% accuracy across 3 therapy sessions to improve speech intelligibility.
