Time again for Wild About Books Wednesday, hosted by Speech is Sweet! This week's book wasn't planned at all. I grabbed it off of the shelf after one of the students (I was working on discrimination of /r/ on the word level) laughed at my mistake. I asked him why he was laughing, and he said that I said the word wrong. When I pointed out that I said it just like he did (and recorded him saying it), he stopped laughing. When I asked him if he had ever read this book, he said that he "weeds" in another teacher's room. Perfect. You know what book I'm talking about:
I wish I could go into the specifics with this student, but I can't. Let me just say that this is an older child with some very "different" circumstances. Bringing awareness to his speech hopefully will encourage him to work outside of the therapy room and hopefully elicit correct productions. This kid is tugging at my heart, y'all.
