Articulation Goal Ideas
- NAME will produce /l/ in single words with 75% accuracy given minimal support in 3 or more data collection opportunities within a month.
- Given no prompts or cues, NAME will produce /s/ in the initial position of words during spontaneous speech in 50% of opportunities in a 3-minute conversational speech sample.
- NAME will produce /s/ during spontaneous speech in a structured setting with an average of 80% accuracy across 2 sessions.
- (In what context) NAME will produce (initial, medial, final) /SOUND/ in words/sentences/conversation with xx% accuracy (given what supports) across # sessions.
Phonology Goal Ideas
- NAME will correct produce /k/ in unfamiliar words in any word position (initial, medial, final) with 75% accuracy across 2 sessions. (to address fronting)
- NAME will produce 3 and 4 syllable words with 80% accuracy across 3 sessions.
- NAME will produce 2 sounds in a consonant cluster (e.g., sm, sk, sn) in the initial position of (words, phrases, sentences) with 80% accuracy in 4/5 data collection opportunities.
- NAME will produce final consonants in CVC words with 80% accuracy in 4 out of 5 data collection opportunities.
- Given a visual, NAME will produce /d/ and /t/ in the initial position of words with 80% accuracy in 4/5 data collection opportunities.
Intelligibility Goal Idea
- When not understood, NAME will independently use communication repair strategies (e.g., restate what he said, increase volume, use slow rate, stress multisyllabic words, use precise articulation) in 3 out of 4 observed opportunities.

Speech Sound Intervention Approaches
When thinking about speech sound therapy, I focus on…
- 1 – Getting as many correct productions as possible.
- 2 – Doing work at the right level including word complexity and language length.
- 3 – Choosing appropriate targets based on my selected treatment approach.
To learn more about different approaches to speech sound interventions and which treatment approach might work best for each of your learners, I’d recommend reading this article from The Informed SLP:
Speech Sound Skills in Context
While most of my speech sound therapy is more drill-based to maximize correct productions, sometimes it makes sense to target words within contextualized language activities, like my story units!
Each one of my story units includes a list of target words from the story itself, making it easy to practice the words in isolation before reading the story and putting all that hard work into action! Check out my story units below:Shop Story Units
