SLP Field Kit aids the Speech and Language Pathologist and Speech Therapist in the field with testing and building phonemic awareness and auditory discrimination (this module covers consonants). ► Going beyond just replacing card decks and flash cards, SLP Field Kit incorporates 8 powerful interactive activities that add dynamic training experiences that challenge and focus your clients. Traditional card decks have been difficult to sort into multi-card activities. Now, at the touch of a button, the cards are presented in powerful combinations that truly focus the client. ► In addition, SLP Field Kit incorporates phoneme buttons as part of the activities, something cards could never do. ► The recorded speech provides stability of pronunciation that promotes consistency in testing. ► 361 audio word cards, which are spoken words illustrated by photographs and drawings along with the text of the words (the text is hidden when appropriate) ► 8 progressively difficult activities to build and to test phonemic awareness ► 198 lessons ► Over 3000 exercises ► Records scores and sends them to email ► Select between International Phonetic Alphabet and the English /sound/ notation ACTIVITIES 1 PRACTICE: REVIEW THE WORDS This activity allows an overview of the words. It displays a word card with a word containing the phoneme (with picture and text), a brief description of the phoneme, and a button showing the phoneme. Press the word card to hear the word and the phoneme button for the phoneme. 2 WHICH PHONEME IS IN THE WORD? In this activity, phonemes are grouped in fours or twos according to their general ‘place’: bilabial, dental, alveolar, post-alveolar, palatal, velar, and glottal. After selecting a group, a word card (without text) containing one of the phonemes from the group is shown along with the phoneme buttons. Example: Which phoneme /p/, /b/, /m/, or /w/ is in the word ‘bead’? The client selects the phoneme in the word. This activity hones auditory discrimination for phonemes initiated from the same general ‘place’. (Morais, 2003) 3 WHICH WORD CONTAINS THE PHONEME? This exercise displays two word cards (without text) and the target phoneme. Example: Which contains /b/; ‘bear’ or ‘cap’? The client must select the word card that contains the target phoneme. (van Hage 2006) 4 IS THE PHONEME AT BEGINNING, MIDDLE OR END? This exercise shows a single word card with a phoneme button. The client selects from three buttons: ‘beginning’, ‘middle’, or ‘end’. Example: Is the sound /n/ at the beginning, middle, or end of the word ‘money’? (Post 2007) 5 CHOOSE SIMILAR WORD BY HEARING THE WORD This exercise shows two word cards as minimal pairs, and a button with the audio target word. Example: Which card is ‘bear’(spoken)? Is it ‘bear’ or ‘pear’ (visual and spoken word cards). The client selects the word card that contains the target word. (multisensory matching, Senkowski 2009) 6 WHICH PHONEME IS IN BOTH WORDS? In this activity, two word cards containing one common phoneme are shown. The client must choose from 4 (or 2 for /h/ and /hw/) phoneme buttons. Example: Which phoneme /p/, /b/, /m/, or /w/ is in both words 'bead' and 'chubby'? 7 WHICH SIMILAR WORD CONTAINS THE PHONEME? This exercise shows two word cards as minimal pairs, and a button with the audio target phoneme. Example: Which card contains /b/; ‘bear’ or ‘pear’? The client must select the word that contains the target phoneme. 8 FLIPBOOK FOR YOUR ACTIVITY This exercise displays a single word card (with text) and a phoneme button, along with a ‘correct’ and an ‘incorrect’ button. It allows the clinician to create custom activities. To the standard 24 consonant phonemes of American English, /nk/ and /hw/ have been added for the purpose of creating minimal pairs with /ng/ and /h/ respectively.
