An automated therapy program, which consisted of 10 half-hour sessions, was designed to establish appropriate production of the /ɝ/, /ɚ/, /ir/, /ar/, /+r/, /ɔr/, and /ur/ sounds in isolation and in words. The apparatus employed utilized tape-recorded material for stimuli and immediate playback to the child of his own correct response, made possible by integrating a delayed feedback (4 sec) device into the system, for reinforcement. A highly significant improvement occurred between the initial and final testing of the eight children who participated in the study. It was also found that there was significant carry-over of correct productions of the sounds taught into words not practiced, although performance on the actual practice words was significantly higher still.
