Articulation Mini Program – Part 1     In-home program

This three-to-four month program is made up of several factors essential for proper articulation: tactile stimulation, muscle strength and air control.  The tactile stimulation builds brain pathways so control of tongue, lips and facial muscles is enhanced.  Exercises to build muscle strength are included so the jaw can more easily be positioned to facilitate accurate sounds.  The important facet of air control is also addressed with fun activities.

In Part 1 of this articulation series, you are provided with a few oral motor activities that are done several times a day, each with a very short 1-2 minute duration.  Spread these stimulation activities throughout your day and in less than 20 minutes total time, you can see progress in your child’s confidence in communication and ability to be understood by others. These movements are foundational to the proper formation of sound in everyday speech.  When they are done often for short burst of time, it is like building muscles and movement skills similar to what occurs in your body when working out at the gym.

Many former clients report that their private speech therapists exclaim about the accelerated progress the child starts making when these activities are added to the child’s routine.  The Articulation Mini Program can be used in combination with speech therapy services or as a standalone intervention.  A speech evaluation by a certified speech pathologist is always encouraged.   

After three-to-four months, the activities need to change to continue the progression needed for improved articulation.  Look for Articulation Mini- Part 2 and 3 to provide you with tools to continue this development at home.
