I’ve been wanting to blog about great sites that give therapy ideas for speech therapy sessions so I will begin with Heidi Kay and her PediaStaff team who who are working hard to assemble a very complete list of activities, articles and suggestions for speech therapists, OT’s and PT’s to use. This is a one-stop shop on their “Pinterest” to get ideas for a fun, learning session with activities sorted by objective on 96 boards–including Articulation, Phonological and Phonemic, Storytelling and Conversation, Inferences and Drawing Conclusions,  Social Skills, or Pragmatics to name a few. 

“Pin of the Week” has a Reindeer Job Application, Santa Falling Down the Chimney using the outline of your hand, word-family cards organized on paint chip samples, and French Fry Articulation (you have to see this one for yourself!) where three MacDonalds french fry containers are used to sort sounds in a word that are at the beginning, middle and end of a word. How clever is that?

Activities for reading comprehension involve beach balls, paint chips, a book report sandwich and flowers. I’m not sure where I will get a beach  ball as the snow is about to fly but I want to try that one!

Take a look and mark this site when you need a little lift and a new idea!
