This course is part of the 2014 Nancy McKinley Lecture Series. Activities for phonology therapy can be as simple as stimulus/response. With some thoughtful design, engaging activities can be created that address stimulus/response along with other developing language skills, early literacy skills, general knowledge, vocabulary enhancement and early academic skills. This presentation will address simple ways this may be accomplished.
