Next week I'm having my students make up their "Speech resolutions." I'm hoping that most of them will resolve to remember to come to speech therapy. Apparently having your SLP come to your classroom is not a big deal in the school I am working at. Next month I'm thinking about dressing like an FBI agent. Do you think that will get them to therapy?
We start each year by reviewing our goals and discussing why we need to come to speech therapy. I think it's nice to take time in the middle of the school year to review where we were AND set some new resolutions of where we want to be by the end of the year. I try to have them focus on "how" they can achieve their goals rather than just rewriting their IEP goals as resolutions.
Some great speech therapy resolutions:
- I resolve to try to say my speech sound correctly for 5 minutes when I am in ________ class.
- I resolve to come to speech therapy on my own by putting the speech times in my planner.
- I resolve to find my speech folder that I got at the beginning of the year.
- I resolve to try to initiate one conversation that doesn't involve mine craft during each speech therapy session.
