I know school is back in session and the beach is far from all of our minds...well, maybe. But I HAD to write about our recent speech therapy sessions using the beach theme! Since I work year round, I like to do a beach theme in July. Book: There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed… Continue reading Speech Therapy Theme Review: Beach Time!

“Must Haves” for the Traveling SLP
So you've decided to become a traveling SLP this school year... This list started out as my 5 "must haves." I had a hard time narrowing down the list.

Speech Therapy Theme Review: Camping
Usually I stick with the same themes from year to year. I add a new one every once in a while. Camping was a new theme for speech this year. It was not originally on my schedule. But when I went to plan my summer speech therapy themes, I thought it would a be a fun one… Continue reading Speech Therapy Theme Review: Camping
