Articulation Generalization Parent/Child Activity
Adult 2020 Imagine Your Story
This is a four-week mission.You and your child are going on a reading mission! For your child’s difficult reading comprehension to become second nature, he/she must PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! It’s time to work on generalizing the words so that he/she is saying it correctly all of the time. (If you don't have children of your own, offer to assist a young relative or child of a friend.)Directions: You’ll first discuss with your child why it is important to read and sound out the words correctly. What may happen when you don’t produce the words correctly? Each week you will practice your “mission.” Your mission will be to choose a time during the day designated for your child to really focus on his/her reading comprehension. During this time you will remind your child to produce the words correctly. This will be the only time you can correct your child on his/her speech sounds. As your child’s performance increases, you will increase the amount of time for your mission. Your mission can occur at any point during your day that you and your child choose. Some ideas include during mealtime, after school, or while reading a book. Afterward, have a nice surprise waiting for them such as a sticker or new pencil.
