Quick Drill Boxes in Speech Therapy

We've all seen the beautiful blogs posts about picture prefect therapy sessions go for that one speech therapist.  Let's be honest...not all speech therapy sessions are smooth and picture perfect.  You may see 6 kids in a mixed group in which you need to address everything from articulation to grammar in 30 minutes.  Maybe you… Continue reading Quick Drill Boxes in Speech Therapy

“Light Up Language” in Speech Therapy

Finding ways to keep kids engaged and interested in speech therapy can be a tricky feat for even the most creative SLP.  After you have spent countless hours on creating ridiculously fabulous lessons (Great job, by the way!), there will always be that one kid that is like "Meh."  Or maybe you are the SLP… Continue reading “Light Up Language” in Speech Therapy

Prehistoric Speech Therapy: A Dinosaur Craft

This week in speech therapy, our theme was dinosaurs. The past few years I have done the same craft. (You can find it here.) But this year, I wanted to do something a little different. I try to change up the craft year to year to keep things fresh. Speech therapy ROCKED this week with… Continue reading Prehistoric Speech Therapy: A Dinosaur Craft

Speech Therapy Theme Review: Presidents and Money

During Presidents week, I modify my speech therapy lessons so that I can use {ALMOST} the same theme all week long.  I connect presidents to money for my younger clients.  For my older clients, we talk about presidents and money.  The little ones don't quite understand elections, voting and Presidents.  But they know what money… Continue reading Speech Therapy Theme Review: Presidents and Money

Using Mailboxes in Speech Therapy

We’ve all seen those cute little mailboxes in the Target Dollar Spot or our favorite dollar store. I know I walked by them a couple of years ago, not sure what I could do with it. Don’t worry…before I checked out, I walked back to pick up 3 (or maybe 5!) These little mailboxes are… Continue reading Using Mailboxes in Speech Therapy

Pizza Sensory Bin in Speech Therapy

I had previously written a post about our pizza theme for speech therapy.  There was a quick (code: terrible picture and description) of my sensory bin.  This year, I revamped it and made it better!  Since I improved it, I figured I would write a quick blog post about it with a freebie! I started… Continue reading Pizza Sensory Bin in Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy Theme Review: Scarecrows

What is it about speech therapy and scarecrows?  I love this theme...yes I know, I say that about every one of my themes.  But this one really gets me ready for fall.  Maybe it's the fact that we dipped into the cooler temps in my area.  Because in Texas, Fall is 83 degrees! Scarecrow Books… Continue reading Speech Therapy Theme Review: Scarecrows

Materials Needed: 1… Continue reading Apple Tree Craft for Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy Fun: Wheels on the Bus

Last week, I did a back to school theme even though many of my speech therapy clients do not attend school.  My older clients (that attend school) read "The Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books."  But my littles (tots through early preschool) are just not appropriate for that book.  So we had a week with "Wheels… Continue reading Speech Therapy Fun: Wheels on the Bus
