Product Description

Each story kit uses predictable, repetitive sentence structures in which target vocabulary is used, and interchanged, within a repeating sentence. And each book uses a unique carrier phrase. This is important because it allows a child with CAS the opportunity for the repetition they need to learn to talk as the carrier phrase is repeated many, many times throughout each book.

Our approach gives these children the opportunity to complete a sentence without having to imitate. This is important because some children will learn to rely on imitation which impedes spontaneous speech. With the repetitive carrier phrase children will learn to use vocabulary without waiting for a model from an adult. And our cute, fun pictures help stimulate vocabulary recall! Some of our clients have even used their very first sentence while using this program.

Each kit follows the same format which again increases the repetition opportunities; however, the vocabulary changes and so do the adorable, silly pictures. It is amazing how young children with all types of speech and language disorders take to these fun repetitive stories. They are extremely engaging for young children even those without speech and language delays! It is so much fun to see the look of excitement on their faces when we take out another of their favorite books with a different theme. They just light up and fill with confidence as they know exactly what is going to happen next.

Who Is It For?

While many of your young clients may benefit from these repetitive story kits, they were designed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) in mind. As you know, kids with CAS have difficulty with speech motor planning. This means that when they want to use the muscles in their mouths to say sounds, words or sentences, they have extreme difficulty planning the movements required to say what they want to say. The more familiar a word or phrase is to a child, the easier it is to say. Because of this, children with CAS require lots and lots of practice with target sounds and vocabulary. They need repetition, repetition, repetition!!

This is one of the many reasons that our Jumpstart Talking Story Kits are so effective. They are designed to help children to learn target sounds and vocabulary.

What's Included?

Jumpstart Talking Story Book. This is the centerpiece of the kit, and it includes a handy therapy guide to help you and your clients get the most out of it (and the rest of the kit). Each flipbook has a unique theme that children love. It is made to stand up to the abuse of a busy therapist. Made by an SLP for SLPs, the 8.5”x5.5” spiral bound flipbook is made of heavy card stock. It is big enough for therapy, but not “too” big. It’s not going to take up a ton of space on your shelf; or, in your therapy bag. The book you will receive is made exactly like the ones that my therapists and I use. The therapy guide includes instructions for 5 different levels of difficulty for this piece of the kit.

Vocabulary Game. This card game is meant to supplement the book, and it carries the same theme as the book in its kit. The Vocabulary Game is designed to repetitively repeat target words and answer Wh- Questions. It can also be used to work on prepositions. The therapy guide includes instructions for two difficulty levels for this game.

Memory Game: This card game also matches the theme of the book in its kit. And it is yet another opportunity for repetition and carryover. While it can stand on its own as a fun activity, it is best used as a carryover activity with the story book and vocabulary game. The therapy guide includes instructions for two difficulty levels for this game as well.

Therapy Guide! What’s the point of having something if you don’t know how to use it? That’s why I am including a therapy guide to walk you through the 5 Phases of the program. Each phase represents a different level of difficulty to help your clients get to the next level.
