Syllable Shapes / Consonant-Vowel Combinations

Children with apraxia have difficulty putting sounds together rather than producing specific sounds in isolation. Goals should be focused on shapes of words such as, CV (e.g., “me”), VC (e.g., “up), CVC (e.g., “hat”), VCV (e.g., “okay”), CVCV (e.g., “bunny”), CVCVCV (e.g., “potato”) rather than specific sounds to teach the movements needed to put sounds together without segmenting the word or omitting/substituting sounds.
