Getting Started with The Entire World of R (Vocalic R)

The Entire World of R™ is a proven, research-based program to evaluate and treat the difficult /r/ phoneme.

The program includes a complete suite of products designed to meet your specific /r/ remediation needs.

Getting Started:

Learning any skill has three main steps, and there are various practice procedures or milestones which help to achieve mastery, or in the case of articulation intervention, carryover of the acquired sound into conversational speech.

  1. The first step to treating /r/ speech sound disorders is to Evaluate and Screen. The purpose of the screening tools is to find a correct production or key word which helps determine placement of the tongue, lips and jaw.

  2. The second step is to Learn and Train. This will allow you to remediate /r/ articulation disorders. Once the correct keyword is established, proper placement can be reinforced using our training products.

  3. The third step is to Practice the 32 allophones (sounds of /r/). We have many products to assist you in practicing.
