Early Apraxia of Speech Stories Backward Buildup This delightful, innovative series provides motivating practice to improve word stress, intonation, and motor planning for children 3-6. Eight storybooks target two- and three-syllable word productions. These books teach the appropriate stress and intonation by removing the semantic load of a word until mastery of the normal flow and rhythm of the word. Words are divided into syllables. The syllables are imitated repeatedly, in a backward order, until the word is easily said. Each page in these books starts with the final syllable of a word and systematically works forward, ending with the target word. The vibrant illustrations are used as visual and tactile cues for smooth movements at the syllable and word levels. Each book includes 12 reproducible picture cards to use for more practice. Two syllable words are covered in Equal Emphasis, Crawly Things, Things to Ride, and Yummy Things to Eat. Three syllable words are covered in More Yummy Things to Eat, Animals, and Places.
8-Book Set: each book has 16 8-1/2" x 11" coated pages
