Metalinguistic Cues and Imagery

 

Metalinguistic Cues and Imagery


All interventions for speech sound disorders incorporate the use of metalinguistic cues and imagery. For example, in the butterfly procedure for lateral and palatal substitutions (e.g., lateral-s) the child is 'cued' to assume the position for /i/ ('ee') and imagine the tongue as a butterfly's wings 'grooving', and 'bracing' against the teeth.

This slide show and handout suggest, for a range of targets:

  • IMAGERY NAMES provided by parent or clinician and possibly modified by the child;
  • VERBAL CUES provided by parent or clinician and possibly modified by the child;
  • GESTURE CUES provided by an adult (parent / clinician / 'helper').
