Do you have mixed articulation and language groups? Looking to eliminate prep? Great news! The Language Theatre Books are completely compatible with Articulation Theatre Books.

Mix and match any combination of scripts – no prep needed! Ages 8-15 years or a 4th Grade reading level. Made in the USA.

"LIGHTS! CAMERA! ACTION! The Language Theatre books coordinate perfectly with the Articulation Theatre Books and are an SLPs dream for mixed groups! I am so excited to use these with my students!" Amanda from A Perfect Blend Teaching

"I just got Articulation Theatre. It's really great. The kids seemed to like it!!!" Randi W., SLP

"My students have really enjoyed the Articulation Theatre Books in therapy this year! They particularly love the I'm Sorry and Insults sections...we always end with compliments and fan mail! Thank you for bringing new life to my speech sessions – especially for my older students and those nearing dismissal who are at the sentence and reading levels!"Jenn B., SLP

"Language Theatre Books for Group Therapy make it easy to target various goals simultaneously in your mixed groups! I just love this unusual twist on therapy and definitely recommend them! The best part is that they can also be used with the Articulation Theatre series!" Rachael from Texas Speech Mom

"I'm so excited for the new Language Theatre Books and that they fit perfectly in my caddy for on-the-go therapy! These books are amazing if you have mixed groups in your therapy sessions!" Ashley from Sweet Southern Speech

"My students became jovial and eager to engage in the lesson. This atmosphere was helpful in therapy to encourage them to self-monitor. They continue to maintain the progress made, which is a testament to the increased motivation they experienced when using this thoughtfully organized, fun and motivating program."Patricia Amodei, MS, CCC-SLP

"My students made measurable progress due to their increased motivation to practice the scenes. Their frustration decreased and liveliness increased as they acted out these entertaining plays. As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I found the books' organization, use of colors to target sounds, ease of use for group therapy and motivating humor to be extremely helpful."Colleen Cull, MS, CCC-SLP

"I got Articulation Theatre this year. I like it for my older kids who are ready to generalize sounds into reading context. Then we can talk about the stories using the vocabulary with their target sounds."Elisa S., SLP

"I love these! I use the Artic Theatre books to make inferences. I cover the passage and have them read the words and make a smart guess to figure out what they think the passage would be about. And use for artic – more like a warm-up. I think you need to have discussions after reading each passage and have students monitor their speech sounds while discussing. They can be modified for how you want to use them. But better for carry over."Debbie F., SLP

"These books are amazing! So fun!" Jessica C., SLP

"My students LOVE Articulation Theatre Books!"K. Schafnitt, SLP

"The performance at the end of the intervention was a way for my students to work towards a goal and have a product (i.e. performance) to highlight their work. The Articulation Theatre Books were instrumental in helping my students achieve their goals."Jennifer E. Pohl, MS, CCC-SLP
