“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

Speech Therapy Theme Review: Purplicious!

The girls continued the girly theme in speech therapy.  This week was all about purple, cakes and painting!  I love this book because it emphasizes to be your own person and don't be afraid to like what you like.  We had an assortment of activities to address each girl's goals.  (You can find all the activities… Continue reading Speech Therapy Theme Review: Purplicious!

Speech Therapy Theme Review: Pinkalicious

Speech therapy just got really girly!  I absolutely love "Pinkalicious!"  I love the conversations that this book stimulates.  How many times were you told as a kid that would turn into the food you ate ALL THE TIME?  I certainly remember hearing I was going to turn into a chicken nugget one day.  Those same… Continue reading Speech Therapy Theme Review: Pinkalicious

Using Coins To Grow Language

How much spare change do you have laying around at home? In jars, on top of the dryer, on the nightstand, maybe in the bathroom…you know you have it. Sometimes, it is not very much.

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

Speech Therapy in the Home: Using Valentine Cards

Every year, I always have leftover Valentine cards.

Anyway, what should you do with those leftover cards? I have some ideas for you! That’s code… Continue reading Speech Therapy in the Home: Using Valentine Cards

Speech Therapy Theme Review: Valentine’s Day

This week, we are all about hearts, pink, red and love in speech therapy! I have a few different books that I use in speech therapy during this week.

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

Use “Wreck this Journal” in Speech Therapy

My daughter bought a “Wreck this Journal” several months ago at a book store. I really did not know much about them. Then, she asked for another one for Christmas. So, I started looking at them.
