Apraxia Keep Talking 2 was created to help with building utterances (MLU) and as a general articulation activity. This is perfect for working with your students and clients with apraxia, articulation disorders, or expressive language disorders. This activity combines a subject, verb, article/preposition, and object to create phrases and sentences. There are a variety of verb tenses so that you can work on including verb markers. The speech therapy tool you need to support building the length of utterances for your clients and students. This version includes s-blends and l-blends.

As an SLP who specializes in Childhood Apraxia of Speech, I designed this for my clients and students that were building from single-word to multi-word utterances. I found that many of my students and clients who had expressive language delays due to articulation, phonological, or apraxia also struggled with grammatical endings. Thus Keep Talking was developed!

Expanding the length of utterance: You can start with bunny, a bunny, see a bunny, I see a bunny, and then to The girls saw the bunny.

The subjects include pronouns and basic subjects. The verbs include 8 basic verbs in present, present progressive, past, and future tenses (look for more verbs coming soon). There is a set of 3 articles and 5 alternative words (prepositions and some prepositions with articles). The Keep Talking 2 comes with l-blends and s-blends. The parts of speech are color-coded (modified Fitzgerald key) for additional cueing. Also included are blank color-coded cards so that you can make your own words. I use this system with the created object cards as well as mass-produced articulation card sets. There are full color and find and color activities to add some fun.

To put together:

Cut the subject, verb, article/preposition, and blend cards. Laminate the cards for more stability. Combine the parts of speech and bind them with a circle clip or binder. I like to use circle clips so I can change out the card sets. See for examples of how to use this product and pictures of the finished product.

 Also included in the product are "find it pages" that can be used as a prompt for the utterances. There are black and white and full-color pages.

What other SLPs are saying:

Great resource for my 2-year-old son.

I originally bought this to support the expansion of MLU in my students with apraxia; however, I am finding that it has been a super helpful product to support my language students. Thanks!

Great resource to use with students who have apraxia and increase phrase/sentence intelligibility.
