Hi Ms. Reardon-Reeves, In "One Thumb Up: Increased self monitoring skills," you mentioned that you had the students first discriminate differences in your speech. Were you speaking in a typical fashion and had them identify changes in your normal prosody, rate, etc? Or were you modeling cluttering speech and having them observe and analyze it, which would allow them to be aware of what they did while cluttering? I also wanted to add how you mentioned that instead of telling them to "slow down," we can direct them to speak in "appropriate, natural prosody," which is a great suggestion and word choice that I would probably use with clients. Thank you so much.
