Companion Activities for Wordless Picture Books

Have you tried wordless picture books with your groups? If not, I highly recommend it. They open the door to discussion and allow for therapists to target SO MANY goals at once. They are also perfect for non-readers, and older students who struggle with reading and typically shut down when you pull out a book […]

Fun With Familiar Games

Do you ever have students light up and say “Oh! I’ve done these before!” when you pull out a tried and true printable game? Kids love routines and they love things that are familiar. Better yet, we don’t have to waste precious therapy time explaining rules when we could be getting high repetitions of therapy […]

Using Bowling Blocks in Speech Therapy

Home practice of skills learned in the speech room is crucial to increasing carryover and generalization in every day life. But does this happen? Not always. That’s […]

Best Treasure “Box” Ever

Treasure boxes are somewhat of a hot topic in the education world. Should you have one? Should you not? Shouldn’t kids just be expected to follow the rules without reward? Well, yeah, they should, but does that always happen? Nope. At least, not at my school. We are in a very low socioeconomic area and […]

Welcome!

Hey there! Well, it has happened- we have a blog. To be quite honest, I never thought we would end up having a blog; what could we possibly have to say to other educators and SLPs that they don’t already know? Why would anyone care what is happening in our lives? Then I realized, we […]
