Tales from Speech Therapy
So this one kid I'm working with is 9. He has a lot of difficulty saying vocalic /r/ (e.g. car, stir, bear, deer, etc.), but we've made some big strides in the last few months. He's also a major bookworm. Magic Treehouse, Minecraft novelizations... if you think a nine year old would read it, he's read it. Often we'll read passages from his favourite books and practice some good vocalic /r/ sounds. Today, to my surprise, he's waiting for me on the stairs clutching a familiar red book...
Yes, friends, it was none other than BIONICLE Adventures #10: Time Trap
Kid: Yeah, I really like this book. You're probably going to think some of the characters have really weird names.
So the legend of Bionicle isn't quite dead yet, folks.
