I have them look at a picture like the one shown in the example below and ask questions like: What is wrong in the picture? How should things be? What might happen next? The student in return responds with an answer and that answer almost always has the targeted sound in it. Please see the picture the below. It was with this picture that I was able to hear the hard to elicit medial /r/ sound from the words, "arrow" and "carrot". My student said, "I would get rid of that carrot and use a real arrow." I was so happy to hear his targeted medial /r/ sound in a word in a sentence response to know that it was what a expected, a bit still "w" sounding. We will continue to work on the medial /r/ sound in words during conversational speech next time, but that's OK! I have more pictures to use from my Silly /R/ Sound Prompting Pictures to use. Yay!

I'm so glad that I could share with you one my favorite products for eliciting spontaneous speech! Silly /R/ Scenes are great and I would recommend that you try them out in your own therapy room too!
Have a great day!
