ARtIC LAB FAQs
What is ARtIC LAB®?   ARtIC LAB® is a bilingual response to intervention (RtI) program for students who exhibit mild articulation deficits in English or Spanish.
Who benefits from ARtIC LAB®?   Use ARtIC LAB® with elementary school students, grades 1–5, PRIOR to referral for speech-language pathology services;  English-speaking students with only one or two of the following sounds in error: R, S, L, SH, and/or CH; and Spanish-speaking students with only one or two of the following sounds in error: R, S, and/or CH will benefit from ARtIC LAB®.
Is ARtIC LAB® appropriate for students already receiving services?  Of course! Since ARtIC LAB® is research-based, all of the strategies are appropriate for students already receiving speech therapy.
How long does ARtIC LAB® take to complete?  In 30-minute sessions four days a week for ten weeks, students rotate through each of the stations.
How was ARtIC LAB® developed?   ARtIC LAB® was field-tested in a culturally diverse school district in the Houston, Texas area. During one semester of intervention, 89 students with speech sound errors received 20 hours of intervention over a ten-week period.  Of the 89 students who participated in the field testing, only two cases resulted in referrals to special education and testing for speech therapy.
How does ARtIC LAB® work?    ARtIC LAB® consists of seven learning stations that maximize the number of sound productions for each student.  Each day, the speech-language pathologist chooses up to five stations based on the number of students in the group (e.g., three students equals three stations).  The maximum number of students in a group is five. 
What are the learning stations?  The ARtIC LAB® learning stations are:
          • Building
          • Emotion
          • Game
          • Gross Motor
          • Listening
          • Writing
          • Self-Monitoring
Why does ARtIC LAB® work so well?    Using ARtIC LAB® allows a student to participate in fun activities and games that require limited concentration, enabling a student to attend to and practice his/her target sounds over multiple occasions while staying motivated.  A student learns quickly to monitor and self-correct his/her sound errors.
