The difference between this set and TIRI 801 is that this set does NOT include the Blast Off Board Starter Set itself. Perhaps you had already purchased a Blast Off Board Starter Set but want to expand your board to include all of the magnets and overlays. If that is the case, then this set is for you.
Are you tired of using picture cards for speech practice? The Blast Off Board combines speech practice with interaction, play, and fun and is especially geared for children with apraxia, articulation delays, or other sound sequencing disorders. This amazing tool is a complete sound sequencing program from vowels to multi-syllabic words and phrases. Remember, though, that this set does NOT include the Blast Off Board Starter Set which is essential to have with these magnets and overlays. Go to TIRI-801 for the complete Level 1 WITH the Blast Off Board.
The sturdy magnets and magnetic overlays in this Level 1 set include vowels (V), consonant-vowels (CV), CVCV, VC, VCV, two word phrases, and final consonants. A variety of consonants from p, b, and m to more complex sounds such as s, sh, and ch are included in this set. Level 1 focuses on the typical progression of children who are at the beginning stages of verbal communication.
The complete sets come with a download of instructions, poems, and songs as well as checklists that can be used for data keeping.
