I was about to fall asleep when I remembered that I still needed to rub my lucky rabbit foot. I laid in bed wishing that kickball could be my job. "Until somebody makes it popular, nobody will be able to make kickball their job," I thought.
I was so busy thinking that I fell asleep.
The bear was running after Brandon and he didn't know what to do. He found the bear's cub on accident, but the bear didn't see it that way. He had tried to hide behind a shrub but the bear found him.
He looked in his backpack only to find a stick of butter, a toy robot, some rubber bands, a soda bottle, and a cheeseburger. He wondered what would get the bear's attention and then he thought..."The cheeseburger!"
He grabbed the burger and began unwrapping it from the paper. He left the burger on the ground, jumped on his bike, and rode away before the bear could find him.
Amber walked through her neighborhood to the bus station. After sitting down she looked around. A man with a beard was sitting across the aisle from her. He was eating a blueberry muffin, a biscuit, and 4 slices of bacon. He began talking to her.
"This is the best kind of bacon you can buy," he said. "I love bacon..." he continued, "it's kind of a hobby of mine."
"That's very interesting," said Amber. She remembered visiting their family cabin in Alabama, last October, for her birthday. Her family had always eaten bacon for breakfast in the mornings.
"Well, be sure that your hobby doesn't become a habit," she said, as she and the man with the beard laughed.
This list of functional words was professionally selected to be the most useful for a child or adult who has difficulty with producing the "B" sound.
We encourage you to use this list when practicing at home.
Home practice will make progress toward meeting individual language goals much faster.
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 "B" 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 "B" 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.
