Earn 2 BACB Learning CEUs! Suited for BCBAs & BCaBAs.

Part 3 of a 4-part series brought to you by BDS and the Maloney Method!
The Practice Makes Perfect Program is an articulation program designed to increase the rate of progress with speech sound production and articulation disorders. With the combination of the Practice Makes Perfect Program, Precision Teaching, and the use of the Standard Celeration Chart, I have observed qualitative changes in student’s lives that I had not seen before. The Practice Makes Perfect Program is a fun way of making speech progress. The students enjoy “beating their score” and all you really need is a kitchen timer. Try it, test it, add to it, and see for yourself how well the Practice Makes Perfect Program fits into your therapy session.

This 2-hour LIVE WEBINAR will occur on June 23rd from 1:00pm to 3:00pm, Eastern Time.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT:
A new way to deliver articulation therapy in school settings

I am a school based speech therapist who has developed a new articulation intervention program that I have called “Practice Makes Perfect Program.” After years of playing “Go Fish” and “Memory” and providing service to the same students for multiple years, I decided I needed to make a change in my approach to therapy. The progress that the special education staff was making with their students encouraged me to learn from them and to change the way I approached my work with students.

I started by timing each student on the sounds they had difficulty producing. I recorded the number of correct responses during each one minute or 30 second timing. Each day, I collected the data and encouraged the students to “beat their score” during the next session. I was amazed as I saw them making measurable progress each time they completed a timing.

Next, I changed the frequency and duration of my therapy sessions. Instead of the traditional twice a week for 30 minutes I now started to see every student at least four times a week for 15 minutes. The progress that the students were making was incredible. To see how much of a difference scheduling and the “Practice Makes Perfect Program” was making, I decided to put the data of 2007, 2008, and 2009 into chart form using a standardized learning rate chart (www.celeration.org). In 2007, students started to use the first version of the “Practice makes Perfect Program”, but I kept the traditional 30 minute sessions twice per week. The progress was limited and inconsistent. In 2008 and 2009, I changed therapy to 15 minutes per day and implemented an improved version of the “Practice Makes Perfect Program”. The progress was amazing! The students moved from one sound position to another in a matter of a few weeks instead of months.

My dismissal rate has increased since making the changes to my speech program. Aside from the quantitative evidence, I have observed qualitative changes in student’s lives that I have not seen before. I would encourage all speech therapists to consider making similar changes in their program so they can see the results for themselves.

Objectives:

  1. Attendees will identify the importance of frequent, short sessions and how it impacts the
    progress in students with articulation disorders.
  2. Attendees will identify how using the Standard Celeration Chart to record speech data
    will provide information such as possible hearing impairment due to fluid, qualification of
    Extended School Year (ESY) services in school aged children, and patterns of behaviors
    during specific days of the week.
  3. Attendees will be introduced to the Practice Makes Perfect Program and be able to write
    articulation goals, identify the present level of performance, adapt the program to best fit
    their needs, and document data using the Standard Celeration Chart.
