Back To School Must Haves
Getting back into the swing of things can be tough, but maybe I can lighten the load with my Speech Therapy Back To School Must Haves!
As hard as it is to leave summer behind, I do love the feeling of a fresh start with a clean slate. Below, I gathered some free and paid resources at Speech Therapy Talk Services for you to browse and download if needed.
Get to know you (free worksheet)
Gaining trust and creating rapport with a client/student is CRUCIAL. The student must feel:
- comfortable enough to work on skills that are hard and frustrating
- excited to work on, let's face it, boring stuff!
- ready to buy into the whole process
I personally like to get to know my students by getting a feel for what is interesting to them, what motivates them, and observe their personality. All this information will make a HUGE difference in therapy.

Goal Reviews (free download)
Many times, students have NO IDEA why they are in speech and/or what they are working on. We have to do better! My students (as young as 3 years old) know their goals.
I think it is imperative that students know exactly what they need to focus their energy on, and then, how to self-assess their progress.
This step is a MUST DO at the beginning of the year as well as throughout the year as needed.
Below is a free download for a simple goal review and self-assessment system.
The product below is one of my all time favorite products for articulation treatment! It not only reviews the anatomy of how to say sounds and provides cue cards, but it helps children "warm up their muscles" each session before all the fun starts! It is my "go to" way to review speech goals before each session.
