120 cards to help with combining consonants and vowels to make simple words! Children with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) can have difficulty moving from one sound to another in a word. This card deck was designed to help children with apraxia or severe speech sound disorders combine sounds into words. The mouth illustrations provide visual reminders for motor movements. I have my students slide their finger across the line in the middle of the card as they practice to encourage a more natural production (instead of segmenting the sounds).

I love these cards. I use them almost everyday with at least one group. When I bound my set I separated into three sets, CV, CVC, and CVCV. That way depending on the group level I can use the correct portion. And if I have a group of two I can have one student practice one level and I can work with the other student with another level. I also purchased another set to use as a Secret Santa gift at out SLP Christmas party. It was a big hit!
I have a client with apraxia who deletes final consonants and this has been an amazing resource. If you make decks like this for more sounds I will buy them all! I Have the R deck and this one.
Perfect for at home carryover with student/parents.
Very clear visuals of the mouth, great tool for non-readers.
These are great with a number of my students. I like the variety and sequence of cards. Sent them to the print shop!
These cards have really helped one of my students with apraxia. The mouth pictures and the illustrations help her remember all of the sounds. I was starting to get frustrated because she was making such slow progress but once we started using this deck she really took off! I bought these as soon as you posted about them and I really want you to make more!
These cards have been so useful for my students who really need that visual support for each individual sound. The artwork is both detailed and simple enough where it provides great support but isn’t distracting. Thanks for making these! I would be interested in others for /l/ or even pairing velar with alveolar sounds in the same word.
