Have you been hitting some walls with finding sound loaded picture scenes for speech therapy to help you target speech sounds at the sentence and conversation levels? Nothing drags me down more than NOT having engaging activities for my articulation students. Plus, if I don’t have articulation materials to help me collect production data, I sweat bullets as the progress reports become due.

That’s why I love finding sound loaded picture scenes that naturally present sound practice opportunities for my students. Using picture scenes to work on articulation can help you get those high trials in a session and keep your students motivated to practice in a session.

Articulation picture scenes as a progress monitoring tool for connected speech! They can be quick to administer and give ya the data you need to share a student’s progress on goals.

I tend to follow a traditional articulation approach for my students with 1-2 sound errors.

Informal Articulation Screener with a Picture Scene

Use this informal articulation screener to assess in connected speech with the picture scene

When doing an informal articulation screener, you want to see what sounds your students may have errors during connected speech. Part of the informal quick articulation screener has word-level stimulus items and a sound-loaded scene with a list of stimulus words to get the student to elicit. By getting a quick conversation sample, you can further probe to see if there are persisting articulation and phonology errors that may not have come up in the word screener portion. 

Sound Loaded Scenes for Articulation Carryover

When I have students at the sentence level that need to start moving over into more spontaneous conversation, I like to use sound loaded picture scenes to help create increased opportunities to practice the target sound.

Using sound loaded articulation scenes has been great to use with my students who are not yet reading, but need to practice their sound in multiple sentences.

All of my No Print and printable articulation flipbooks contain two picture scenes per sound.

These sound loaded scenes have helped me take data on goals and a quick probe to see if the sounds are emerging into new positions.
