Ask Mrs. R
Got questions or comment about how to treat vocalic /r/?
Evaluating and treating /r/ articulation disorders, especially vocalic /r/ disorders, can be difficult, elusive and most of all frustrating. The Entire World of R™, the phonemic approach to /r/ remediation, developed by Christine Ristuccia, SLP, addresses /r/ in a straightforward, easy-to-use methodology. This evidence-based approach has helped thousands of speech-language pathologists (SLPs) evaluate and treat /r/ more effectively and with quicker results.
Implementing new protocols, however, can be tricky and sometimes challenging as old ways of intervention are replaced with newer, different methods. If you have frustrations or questions, surely others have the same frustrations and questions. Perhaps you can learn from the challenges of others or they can learn from yours. We invite you to contribute to our community for all things /r/.
