Apraxia CVCV and CVCVCV targets Keep Talking 1 was created to help with building utterances (MLU). This activity was designed to support kiddos with apraxia, articulation disorders, and expressive language disorders. This CVCV and CVCVCV activity combines a subject, verb, article/preposition, and object to create phrases and sentences. This activity will help your students expand and build utterances.

Example of buillding utterances for an individual with apraxia:


a bunny

see a bunny

I see a bunny

Amy sees a bunny

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!

This activity INCLUDES:

  • A variety of subjects, verbs, and objects to build utterances.
  • 8 verbs in present, present progressive, past, and future tenses
  • There is a set of 3 articles and 12 alternative words (prepositions and some prepositions with articles).
  • Comes with 48 cvcv words
  • 40 multisyllabic words (CVCVCV and CVCVCVCV)
  • 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.
