Seeing Speech
A Quick Guide to Speech Sounds

Sharynne McLeod, Sadanand Singh
40 pages, Spiral Bound, 5.5 x 8.5"
Release Date:


This flip chart enables ready comparison of key images for each consonant and vowel. It is of particular importance for speech-language pathologists working with adults and children to change their articulation of sounds and for students of phonetics as they develop an understanding of the similarities and differences between sounds.


  • Sarah Braithwaite, NHS Tower Hamlets, Speech and Language Therapy in Practice magazine (Spring 2011):
    "Each sound is represented on each side of the divided pages. Each side can be 'flipped' independently so any two sounds can be compared. The sound is described together with a photograph, diagram, ultrasound image and EPG frame. Older children and adults would find the photo and diagram useful...Useful to brush up on exactly how a sound is produced and possibly for training other professionals."
