Apraxia Bones

Happy Friday! Just wanted to share a quick picture of my therapy room this week. One of my students with apraxia is working on  initial /b/ + vowel combinations. The many repetitions this requires, gets boring quickly.  I frequently use this Feed the Dog set with our 'drill.'

I cut a strip of words (from SPARC Artic JR) and place it next to the dog bowl. Once he says all four words he gets to feed the dog one bone. He's supposed to use the tweezers as work on fine motor, but as you can see, he usually just uses those fingers :) I make the puppy bark everyone he feeds it!

What do you use to encourage drill for your little ones with apraxia or severe articulation/phonology delays.
