Alaskan Fast Food Interactive CD-Vowel Production
 

Alaska Fast Food incorporates vowel patterns in a fun interactive game format.  After working for years with distorted vowels in children with apraxia, dysarthria, or cleft palate, I wanted an interactive program that would enable me to use various drills of CV, CVCV, and CVCVCV with mixed consonants as well as mixed vowels.  I also wanted the option to work in a traditional phonologic approach as well as a ‘newer’ oral motor placement approach using jaw gradient.  I was determined to be able to program my patterns from front to back consonants as well as open to closed vowels, without having to spend the entire therapy session formulating those patterns to match the disability.

The OPTION Menu allows the clinician to choose between a ‘specific’ or a ‘general’ classification of consonant production.  Choice between female and male voice is also a part of the option page. 

Dropdown Menu 1 If the ‘specific’ approach is chosen in options; Bilabial, Alveolar, Velar, Palatal, Dental, or Mixed consonant placement are displayed.  If the ‘general’ approach is chosen in options, consonant placement in the mouth using Front, Medical, Back, or Mixed is displayed.

Dropdown Menu 2 allows the clinician to choose the type of jaw gradient the clinician targets.  Vowel production is determined by choosing Open, Medium, Closed, and Mixed.

Dropdown Menu 3 allows the clinician to choose the phoneme (consonant) to practice.  If she chooses mixed then they are presented randomly.

Dropdown Menu 4 allows the clinician to choose the specific vowel of the groups to practice.  If she chooses mixed then the vowels are presented randomly.

 Alaska Fast Food was developed in conjunction with artist Nikki Kinne, a Fairbanks artist who has always been a fellow teacher of disabled students.  After reviewing several of the children’s software programs she had a great desire to incorporate her watercolors to depict ‘real Alaska’.
