What's New at Speech2u: January Edition and a Giveaway

Once a month, I take some time to share some of the products that I have created which are available on my Teacher's Pay Teacher's and Teacher's Notebook stores.  This allows me to spend the rest of the month focused on fun products, soapbox Saturday's and therapy ideas.  I call it's What's new at Speech2U because I love to insert a little rhyme into my features.

I forgot to do this in December so I've got a few products to share.

Visual Scavenger Hunts throughout the year

I work a lot on eye contact and facial referencing with my client's on the Autism Spectrum.  This is an activity that I tried over the Holidays and liked so much that I decided to make it enough scavenger hunts to go throughout the year.  This download includes 12 different scavenger hunts, directions for teaching eye contact and extension activities.  Although it was developed to teach eye gaze and joint attention, it is really fun to use with other clients.  For them, I hide the pictures and then they need to complete certain tasks or answer questions whenever they find the item.

Add it UP: Football and Valentine's Day ninja editions.  


I added 2 more versions to this popular quick play game.  



I love using these conversation starters and WH questions at the start of therapy sessions or when the sessions are almost over.  They are great for articulation carryover and for checking on generalization for WH questions.  




I really love Fill in the blank stories like Mad Libs® but found it difficulty for my clients to come up with the best targets to use in therapy.  So I came up with own word lists.  These are available separately OR you can purchase the whole set for 20% off the individual purchase price. 

Ultimate Categories Interactive Flashcards:  






This is one of my favorite category activities.  I've been working with a client on category exclusion and needed to find a way to break it down so that I could teach her more efficiently.  So far she is demonstrating good improvements in her understanding of what doesn't belong.  

You can enter in to win a copy of your favorite product by entering the Rafflecopter below.  But hurry, the rafflecopter only goes through Friday!

One of the things I struggle with is writing. When I only have 20 minutes with a client writing is difficult. Many of my secondary students have five paragraph writing goals. In order to go through everything (organization, research/topic details, writing the paper, corrections/revision) we need at least 4 or 5 sessions. That is three weeks worth of speech. I am always trying to think of other ways to help and get as much writing as we can in.

I find it most difficult teaching social skills to emotionally disturbed kids! It's hard to make a clear path with them without distractions or other things that set them off and get them off topic!

The toughest skill to teach for me generalization and carryover of therapy targets to the classroom setting.

I find it difficult to find materials to continually engage my students who are working on things that can get monotonous...aka the /r/ and /s/!

I have several students at my school who are on the autism spectrum, and they have very poor attention skills, so just keeping them focused and engaged in a task is a challenge. Your Visual Scavenger Hunts look perfect for this!

I find generalization/carryover of fluency-enhancing techniques the most difficult to teach.

Valerie said...

I find it challenging to work on vocabulary with upper elementary and older students. Where to begin? How to make sure they get the most important vocabulary words? So many to choose from!

Functional language for non-verbal students!!

fluency--I have a student with stuttering/cluttering with other needs that is my most difficult

I think social skills is the most challenging for me. Most of my students with social pragmatic needs are in middle school and I don't get as much time as I need to address goals.
