The Farm House is where players can practice single word production. Fully customizable by sound groups, vowels, and syllable structure, the Farm House is the intermediate step between syllables and multi-syllabic words.
The farm house includes seven (7) syllable structures (CV & VC, CVC, CVCV, CCVC, etc.). With over 22 consonant and vowel options, there is a wide variety of words to practice.
When the Farm House is selected, a window will populate with the selection of targets. Simply choose the syllable structure and the sound groups for each player. When there are multiple players, each individual will have his or her own targets for easy customization.
When choosing a target, first select the syllable structure. Then choose the sound group that is being targeted. For instance, if the syllable structure level 1: “CV and VC” and the sound group “p, b, m” is selected, all consonant-vowel and vowel-consonant words containing p, b, and m will be used (e.g., “boo” “my” and “aim”). If the level 2 syllable structure (CVC) is selected and the “short A” phoneme is selected all consonant-vowel-consonant short A words will be used (e.g. “man” “cash” and “bat”).
If the user selects more than one syllable structure or more than one sound group, all of the words for the selections are used. For instance, if the user selects CVC and CVCV words both of those syllable structures will be displayed. If the user selects p, b, m and short A, then ALL p, b, m (e.g., “buck” “bar” “peel” and “pole”) will be displayed AS WELL AS all the short A words (e.g., “wag” “gas” and “can”). This ability to combine syllable structure and sound groups allows the individual to tailor each session and maximize the potential progress for every individual.
