Once there was a goose named Gus. Gus liked to play games, chew gum, and give gifts. Everyone who knew Gus, knew that he gave great gifts.
Once he gave someone a guitar. Another time he gave his friend a new set of luggage. All of his friends agreed that the best gift that Gus ever gave was a year's supply of hamburgers.
One day, Gus was tugging around a wagon with a gigantic bag in it. He tugged on the wagon from Mr. Dog's farm all the way to Mrs. Frog's wig shop. Everyone in town saw the wagon with the gigantic bag in it, but no one knew who would get the bag.
Doug was a good friend of Gus. Doug was busy planting green beans, grapes, and gooseberries in his garden. He didn't see Gus coming toward his house and tugging the wagon behind him.
When Gus finally reached Doug in his garden, Doug said, "Why are you pulling that wagon Gus?"
Gus replied, "I came to give you a gift Doug."
Doug was very excited and felt like an important person. He knew that Gus gave good gifts.
When Doug took the bag off of the gift, he couldn't believe his eyes. It was a big stack of eggs! Doug was so happy that he ran over to Gus and gave him a big hug.
Doug loved to eat eggs every morning. He knew how to cook eggs in many different ways. Doug thanked Gus for the nice gift and said, "I will buy you a nice gift one day."
Then they both said goodbye and Gus went home.
Each year Gary would play golf in August. He would get his golf clubs from the garage and drive to the golf course.
On his way, he would pass Farmer Gil's goose and pig farm. When he got to the golf course he bought a hot dog, a bag of chips, and a big mug of hot chocolate.
He played his best game while chewing sugar free gum and using the mug with the green dragon on it. He wanted to do that again. He grabbed his golf bag and dragon mug and headed for the first hole.
When Gabe began learning to play the guitar, he thought it would be easier than chewing gum. After his third lesson, his head was foggy from everything he learned. Then he met the man with the gold guitar.
He said his name was "Golden" but Gabe thought it was something else.
Golden taught Gabe to set goals while he learned how to play the guitar. Golden gave Gabe a small flag with the words "Set Goals" on it that he could keep with him as a reminder. Gabe kept it with his guitar and used it every time he learned a new lesson.
After that, he never saw Golden again. Some people say Golden was a nice ghost who liked to help people.
This list of functional words was professionally selected to be the most useful for a child or adult who has difficulty with producing the "G" sound.
We encourage you to use this list when practicing at home.
Doing home practice will help your child make much faster progress toward correct production.
Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) are only able to see students/clients 30-60 mins (or less) per week.
This is not enough time for your child to overcome an articulation disorder with the "G" sound. But with high caseloads...
...it's all SLPs can do.
There's only so much time in the day.
Every day that your child goes without practice it becomes more and more difficult to correct an "G" error because he/she continues to say it incorrectly.
We know life is busy, but if you're reading this you're probably someone who cares about helping their loved one as much as you can.
Practice 5-10 minutes whenever you can, but try to do it on a consistent basis (daily).
Please, please, please use this list to practice.
It will be a great benefit to you and your loved one's progress.
