I have been a traveling speech pathologist for 10 years now. That doesn't even include the time I spent working in the school system and traveling between schools. Out of my seven years of being a school based SLP, 6 of those years had me dragging materials between at least 2 campuses. To say I… Continue reading Practical Gifts for the Traveling Speech Pathologist

Let's face it...simple speech therapy activities are the jam! There's little to prep and keep up with. You don't have to manipulate 10,000 items on your therapy table. Most of the time, you can stretch that activity to reach the majority of your clients, if not all! That last part is a huge BONUS! As… Continue reading Simple Speech Therapy Activity: Mittens and a Snowball

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

(You can find all the activities… Continue reading Speech Therapy Theme Review: Purplicious!
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
So, it's officially summer here in Texas. No, I don't wait for the actual "First Day Of Summer" on the calendar. It's summer in Texas when your thighs stick to your seats in your car. Cue the fun summer themes in speech therapy!! I found these adorable tin grills in the dollar spot of my… Continue reading Summer, Grilling and Speech Therapy
