Calling all pediatric SLPs! This post is in regards to the bain of many SLPs' existences. /R/.
My neighbors/friends asked if I would help them out. Their son is not saying his /r/'s correctly. As you know, I work in the hospital with adults. I am wanting to help them, but feeling like I might not be the best person for the job. They are willing to try me anyway.
Their 12 year old has been in speech therapy for years. He can produce /r/ correctly in structured tasks some/most of the time. They do their speech homework.
My questions to you are:
What are the cues you SLPs use to elicit the /r/? (I know several of us use different cues.)
Do any of you take private clients at home, just informally? Do I need to do any official paperwork??
