  1. I am glad this is shared. There is much interest, and many misconceptions about sound walls. It requires careful consideration and training. Before using, educators must consider the ages and developmental stages of students, personal training and ability to support the ‘scientific’ research into articulation, how to explicitly teach, and whether there is access to ongoing support from a trained SLP. It is not a simple – yes use it, or no don’t use it.
