Presenter: Char Boshart, MA CCC-SLP 

In two hours, you'll learn what you need to know to remediate most of your /r/ distortion kids.

We'll go through the detailed sequence, with therapy tools, so you know exactly what to do. I've worked with a lot of /r/ distortion kids and have discovered the bottom-line three critical elements of the /r/ production. I think you'll appreciate the simplicity of the concepts.

And, like /s/, we'll cover /r/ comprehensively-from beginning to end. From analysis to therapy, to /s/ stim, to solidification, to carryover, and finally, graduation!


As a result of attending this seminar, participants will be able to:

  • List and describe the three production elements of the /r/ speech sounds.
  • Compare and contrast the distorted /r/ elements with the correct /r/ production elements.
  • Demonstrate at least three of the sequential therapy tasks for the /r/ speech sound.
  • List at least three of the components within the sequence /r/ solidification sequence.
  • Name two oral structural differences and how they can potentially impact speech production.
