33 Sound Loaded Books for High Pressure Sounds

Children with a repaired cleft palate may need help building enough intraoral pressure to produce high pressure sounds. Pressure consonants include p, b, t, d, k, g, f, v, s, z, sh, ch, th, and dg (“judge”).

Prior to palate repair, children can produce nasals, liquid, glides, and vowels. These sounds include m, n, ng, l, h, y, w, r, plus all vowels.

Some examples words that a cleft-affect child can produce before palate repair are: “mama”, “no”, “yay”, “ya” for yes, “wawa” for water, “ni ni” for night night, “me”, “more”. Sound loaded books are a great way to get auditory feedback and practice sounds.
