Silly sentences—those that use alliteration—can be a useful tool in articulation and language treatment, according to SLP Holly Flynn's recent post on the PediaStaff blog.
"A sentence that uses alliteration offers repeated opportunities for practice. Articulation treatment yields the best results when children have opportunities to use a sound repeatedly during a session, and silly sentences repeat the same sound over and over." In addition, "a fictitious sentence might not be a sentence you would ever say in real life, but it's fun to think about, and that silliness can be motivating for children in therapy." And, Flynn says, the child can help make up sentences: "Rather than using pre-made flashcards, therapists can involve the child in thinking and creating sentences using their target sounds."
