Newest App for Treating the "R" Phoneme

PR Log (Press Release) – May 12, 2010 – On May 11, Smarty Ears released an innovative new app that focuses on therapy for one of the most common articulation difficulties among young children: the production of the /r/ phoneme. Smarty Ears’ new app, called “R intensive SLP”, is a fun, well structured, yet easy to administer way of practicing the most feared English sound.

The /r/ phoneme is one of the most complex phonemes in the English language and therefore one of the most frustrating sounds, for not only for speech therapists but also for children and parents. Often, students are enrolled for many years to learn to produce this one sound in the English language. Individuals who come from other countries often also have difficulties learning to pronounce this very “tricky” sound.
