Take your oral-motor and articulation therapy to new heights with this fantastic new book from Pam Marshalla, a leader in the nationwide oral-motor movement. Successful R Therapy teaches you how to train even the most difficult R clients. You'll learn how to establish a "Cornerstone R" (the first R sound your student can produce consistently) and then move quickly to words, sentences, and conversational speech.
Written in a very practical, straightforward style, Marshalla once again demonstrates the integral relationship among oral-motor skills, auditory processing, and articulation control.
