    This was very informational and good for an SLP who is just beginning and needs to know where to start with /r/ therapy. I wanted a little more in-depth information about elicitation techniques. The screening portions could have been explained in a much shorter amount of time. I was able to take away a new process of screening for /r/ though!

    I began using this approach years ago when I realized that my students had such specific needs for the /r/. I didn't even know your book was available and it would have saved me so much time in creating my own activities! Thank you - anxious to look up your website for your other materials.

    Good information for the amount of time allotted and for "free". Good intro to the phonetic approach and how to use her materials/program. I will definitely be looking into the lengthier courses she offers through her website and those available elsewhere, such as a 6 hour course through SpeechPathology.com that other attendees mentioned.

    I enjoyed the course. I could not hear the video, but I did see that it is posted on your website, so I'll be sure to check it out there. I feel as though the quiz might have some errors, such as asking about the "Four" categories of /r/, when the slides and presentation discussed three.

    Enjoyed the presentation and LOVE using the Entire World of R materials with my middle schoolers! While I understand the information presented in the course very well, I had a hard time with this course's quiz/learning assessment, as it was not at all aligned with the presentation and many of the questions and answer choices were very vague. For example, the presenter and handouts clearly stated 3 types of R, but the quiz asked what are the 4 types of R?.

    allison-5

    Christine was a great presenter and her information presented was extremely informative and research based, however the quiz at the end does not correlate with the presentation.

    Good introduction for someone completely unaware of the phonemic approach to /r/ and a good refresher for those familiar with her materials. I wouldn't recommend it for the seasoned EWR consumer. Also, there was one item on the quiz that did not correspond to what was presented.
