Each Tongue Twister picture has a small tracking area that will allow you or you client to keep track of their success with a wipe off marker (not included) as they repeat these fun twisters 2,3 or 10 times depending on their individual goals!
Unlike some other tongue twisters that are long, complex sentences that some clients may not be able to complete, let alone master, D’Amore’s Tongue Twisters are short phrases, designed to be learned more easily. The repetition of them allows for greater length of practice if required. As they are mastered, the speed of repetition may be increased more readily than with longer tongue twisters.
Smooth and clear speech is the goal, not speed!
Ask the client to say the phrase as clearly as they can.
Depending on their goals and ability levels, you may ask the client to repeat the phrases two, three or more times. Speed of repetition can be increased as sound production is mastered. Tracking progress for each tongue twister can be done on the special side area.
More than just a Fun Artic Tool!
Tongue Twisters have been used for phonemic awareness!
Many SLPs find creative ways of using tongue twisters for many other speech goals beyond simply articulation.
Tongue twisters are typically mastered through practice of a slow, steady smooth speech pattern, which is part of the goal of many speech therapy areas!
All D’Amore’s Tongue Twisters are written AND illustrated by Don D’Amore MA CCC/SLP.

There are many different aspects of the individual's abilities and degrees of severity of communication abilities, methods, and differences that must first be determined through formal evaluation by a qualified professional before therapy can begin.
