Keep stuttering therapy moving with less prep time and fewer materials! Fluency FLiPS is a convenient, all-in-one flip-book that will help you teach students strategies for smooth speech—plus online audio samples of the author producing each of the targeted skills provide a model for perfecting your teaching techniques.
This easy-to-manipulate flip-book has no cumbersome pieces or parts to carry with you from session to session. Plus, the easel-stand base makes the activities on each page easy for both you and your student to see.
Fluency FLiPS guides students step-by-step through the Easier Relaxed Approach as presented by renowned fluency expert Kristen A. Chmela. Students practice beginning words, phrases, and sentences smoothly using four fluency-shaping skills:
- Easy vowel onset
- Light consonant contact
- Continuous sound
Instruction is straightforward with the book’s simple directions, visual cues, and practice pages for carryover and generalization. The divider tabs allow quick access to specific skills.
Also, the first two sections of Fluency FLiPS include a Tool Rope activity to help students learn and distinguish the three types of onsets:
- Hard glottal onset or a sound pop/press
- Regular onset
- Easy vowel onset or gentle touch
Tool Rope activities increase a student’s awareness of the tension present in the vocal cords and articulators at the onset of speech.
With this comprehensive, 124-page book (7" x 5 1/2"), students will be practicing smooth and easy speech in no time!
