Articulation Road Map for TH, SH, CH, and J Sounds

Articulation for SH speech sounds

I love implementing a literacy-based approach in my articulation therapy sessions. However, it is not always easy to identify books with a heavy load of the target sound. I created a “Road Map” that provides a list of books for targeting TH, SH, CH, and J sounds. It also includes tips for sound production, play-based activity ideas, and bookmarks.

I have highlighted a few of my favorite books below (amazon affiliates included), but you can access the full FREE Articulation Road Map for TH, SH, CH, and J sounds directly to your inbox by filling in your information at the end of this post.
