The Speech Sound Set 

To order, visit our store. 

This versatile resource is a must for speech pathologists, preschools and teachers of literacy.  It comes on a  USB stick packed full of information sheets, programming tips, wordlists, pictures, mouthshape links and activities. It is unique in that it uses a fun character (called a Sound Buddy) to represent each sound.  Each Sound Buddy  has a mouthshape that represents the mouthshape used to make their specific sound.

Each Sound Buddy also comes with a story that is linked to their sound production and a hand cue.
