Speech Therapy -> Phonology -> Phonological Awareness

Phonological Awareness

Phonological awareness is the foundation for learning to read. It is the ability to recognize and work with sounds in spoken language; an individual's awareness of the phonological structure, or sound structure, of words. Phonological awareness is an important and reliable predictor of later reading ability.

  • Given visual and verbal stimuli, Coleman will expressively segment, manipulate and blend phonemes together (initial, medial, and final positions of words) with 90% accuracy across 3 therapy sessions to improve auditory processing skills.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Rick will produce /p/ in all positions spontaneously in words, phrases and sentences with 90% accuracy across 3 therapy sessions to increase 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.
