Successful R Therapy: Fixing the Hardest Sound in the World
Successful R Therapy teaches how the jaw, lips, and tongue work for correct R production. Learn to understand the difference between the Consonantal R and the Vocalic R, and between a Tip R and a Back R. This book teaches you how to train even the most difficult R clients. You’ll learn how to establish a “Cornerstone R” (the first R sound your student can produce consistently) and then move quickly to words, sentences, and conversational speech.
Successful R Therapy was used as a textbook at the University of Kentucky in 2007 for the class Phonological Development and Disorders (CD 661). The book was also a suggested resource for Neurological Speech Disorders II (CD 678). This book is currently being used as supplemental reading material in college and university courses on articulation.
