"Useful, applicable, well-explained resources and concrete examples. Great stuff! I feel I have been given the "ok" to ask directly for relevant & timely curriculum information (& even materials) vs. trying to 'recreate the wheel' using my own stock of self-created themes, activities, and materials in my best attempts to directly support the curriculum." K.L. (Jul. 2023)

"I learned about using 'focused contrasting' in other areas than speech sound minimal pair words." D.N. (Feb. 2022)
