Do you have students who show weaknesses in following directions? How about processing verbally complex information? The pacing of classes, especially as students get older require the ability to have fine-tuned listening skills. Understanding sequence and ordering of steps is hugely important when considering word problems in math. Sometimes we need to almost “drag” our students through the work to get the results that we need. How about something that can help shore up these weaknesses and maybe even make…

I don’t know if you have had the chance to check out the apps put out by Tiny Bop, but they are out of this world. I cannot begin to describe all of the aspects of language that can be worked on within these “games,” but they are excellent examples of when “fun” can be easily changed into “work.” Robot Factory is outstanding for working on sequencing. Children get a lot of reinforcement by changing from part to part (i.e.;…

Articulation Station Pro is my go-to app for group and individual work in the school.

While traditional flash cards or worksheets have their time and place…

I have a few boxes of sequencing cards in my office. I did not buy them, but really discovered them after going through the materials that were left by the therapist who had retired. At first glance, I thought the pictures could use some updating, but I decided to give them a try. To my initial surprise, the kids liked them, and I was getting a lot of language work done with one set of materials. Fast forward 2 years…

I’ve been working with a kindergartner for awhile now. After a really positive conversation with his school therapist, I have taken a new course in his therapy. I discovered this Speech Therapy for Apraxia by Blue Whale apps over a year ago, and had trouble fitting it into my therapy with some kids. I saw the benefits of it, but didn’t have the match with the child yet. Now, I can see the real value of the material within the…
