Sticky Wall Toys Therapy Tip

How to use Sticky Toys.
I found a new favorite sticky toy.  I  got them at Target for $2.00 for a set of 12 sticky men in the party section, Walmart has them for $3.21.

Lesson Plan for using these sticky men for any articulation session.
1. Your student or client does warm ups correctly saying their target sound 20-40 times each in isolation for placement, manner and voicing  (best used with the SmartPalate System). Check out CompleteSpeech Company for this system.

2.  Have your student says his/her word or phrase 5Xs at 80% or greater accuracy first; then they or you  toss the sticky man up  on the wall, and every time the mad turns,, falls, flips, or moves, the child has to say his target word. You get tons of production.

3. Variation; toss up two different men and they have to say and remember which target word goes with which man that moves.

The beauty of this is for generalization of their speech.  The man moves at random times, so the student has to be prepared to say their words at any moment.  sometimes they say them many times in a row, other times with more breaks.  They get tons of practice. They want to keep tossing the man up over and over again.

I also send one man home with them to carry over their practice.  They LOVE this.
