D Word List
Google Drive D Word List
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Google Drive. I can access my word lists from any device; laptop, desktop, or phone.
If you want a copy, fill out the form above. I put all the word lists in one folder. Once you receive your email with the materials, make a copy of the files and they are yours to use and tweak as needed.
This is MY FAVORITE NEW RESOURCE! I HONESTLY use it all the time for each articulation session and handouts for home practice.
The words chosen for speech therapy can make all the difference between a good therapy program and a great one! For the generalization phase, it is crucial to use high-frequency words!! It only makes sense to use words that the client will actually say outside of the therapy room. Right?!

How to Say D
To say the sound /d/, put the tip of your tongue behind your teeth. This spot is called the alveolar ridge or the "bumpy" spot.
- Cue your child to put their tongue behind their teeth.
- The concept of "behind" can be tricky to grasp. If so, try to put peanut butter or yogurt on the "bumpy spot" to have them feel where the tongue should go.
