Review by: Victoria on July 31, 2015
Really interesting information that we were not taught in graduate school- changes my whole idea of /r/ assessment and therapy, and makes so much sense! I particularly found the "secondary characteristics" idea, such as jaw misalignment, very interesting.. THANKS!

A new approach to the "difficult /r/" I wish this was taught in graduate school! I'm glad I'm not the only one that has struggled through the years with some students and correcting this sound. I think you make it look easier than it really is once you get started and begin working on carryover. Thanks for the enlightening information. Some of the screens at the end of the seminar regarding the Levels could use more bolding/highlighting and bullet points to make them more easily understood-I got a little confused here.
