mail for speech therapyMy mail delivery is getting smaller and smaller these days, comprised mostly of brochures and advertisements but even those can have a second use as materials for speech therapy.

I am working with a student on conversational skills– commenting more and asking fewer perseverative questions. So when this colorful brochure arrived, advertising a community offering and picturing boating, horseback riding, eating, biking, swimming and more, I decided to use it to spark some conversation and even brainstorming in categories like what we would like the chefs to make for us (steak, pasta…) or when did we go horseback riding (Hole in the Wall Camp) and so on. Because my student is in middle school but is more limited cognitively, it is hard to get appropriate materials some times so the mail delivered just what I needed and he enjoyed it!
