TOS Crew: Super Star Speech
As a homeschool group leader, I am often asked about homeschooling children with Special Needs. I was thrilled when I heard that I was selected to review Super Star Speech, by Deborah Lott M.Ed Speech Language Pathology.
As part of the TOS Homeschool Crew I was sent a free copy of Super Star Speech, Speech Therapy made Simple.
This manual is designed to help those children with mild articulation errors in their speech. It is not designed to correct physical problems that may cause speech issues.
As a mom with children who have had professional speech therapy, I can tell you that they would always show the most improvement when we the family, would work with them everyday, in between their speech therapy sessions.
This program builds on that principle. Deborah Lott saw the same results in her practice.
What I really liked is that they had an articulation test within the manual, as well as, the instructions on how to administer the test. And how to score the test.
The manual also includes blank lesson plan forms, blank games and flash cards. They do not have pre-made lesson plans, as each child will need a tailored plan to meet their specific needs. However, you will have at your fingertips, words lists and instructions on how to teach each sound. This is invaluable. Often times, parents will know where their child needs help, but does not know how to help them. This manual will help them do that.
What is great about this program, is that Deborah Lott, is a homeschooling mother, and Speech and Language pathologist. She understands what homeschoolers need.
If you have a child who is struggling with articulation errors, or other speech issues, please visit Super Star Speech and see what they have to offer.
Super Star Speech is available in Spiral Bound for $18.95 and Ring Bound for $22.95. You can also purchase an E-book version for up to 40% off.
