Oral Placement to Speech Kit (OPT-S) Articulation Card Set

Product Description

The Oral Placement to Speech Kit (OPT-S) Articulation Card Set is an innovative articulation program designed to translate muscle movements into speech sound production. The program was designed specifically for children and adults with muscle-based speech disorders, such as low tone and dysarthria. It is uniquely based on jaw transitions and the complexity of articulatory place shifts within words.

The Oral Placement to Speech card set is divided into easy, moderate and difficult words based on transitions of the jaw. The 185 cards allow therapists to select words based on phonemes and/or complexity. Included in the speech card set are the early developing phonemes m-b-p (bilabials), t-d-n (tongue retraction with tip elevation), k-g-h (velars) and w (lip rounding). The sounds are combined with an array of vowels in CV (consonant-vowel) and CVC  (consonant-vowel-consonant) combinations.
