24 Is /l/ giving you trouble at the end and/or middle of words? Check the sound again at the beginning of words - does it sound “flat?” Sound production not efficient if the tongue is not creating a “bowl” to make the sound Use a toothette to increase the awareness Don’t forget to follow the production of the /l/ with lots of practice in words! Dealing with a Tricky /l/

25 Dream: to group our students with goal-alike needs Reality: having groups of students who each have a different goal Use goal category cards Will help you keep track of each student’s goal area Will help increase your students’ awareness of their goal One Group; Many Goals Student Goal: following directions Student Goal: compare/contrast vocabulary terms Student Goal: /s/ at the beginning of words Student Goal: maintaining topics of conversation YOU

26 Some of my favorite speechie therapeutic tools:

27 Compare & Contrast use sentence stems o _____________ and ___________ are the same because they are both ___________________________________. o _____________ and ___________ are different because ___________ is ________________ and _____________ is _____________________ Vocabulary Ideas

28 Idioms have students draw two pictures: o one showing the literal meaning o one showing the inferential meaning Basic Vocabulary acoustically similar words are paired with pictures to differentiate multiple meanings (e.g., pitcher vs picture) Vocabulary Ideas (con’t.)

29 vocabulary “wh” questions sentence formulation categorization articulation in connected speech Jeopardy Game WhoWhatWhereWhenWhyHow 100 200 300 400 500 This game is good for:

30 A great way to increase language at snacktime… One child is the Snack Shack helper. This child puts out the various snack choices. They are assisted at the Snack Shack table by an adult to help prompt and support. When it is a child’s turn they approach the snack table. The Snack Shack helper asks, “What do you want for snack today?” The child requests the snack they want, and the snack helper fill the order and gives it to the child. It can be adjusted to target specific sounds, to work on asking & answering questions, use of full sentences, making choices, waiting for a turn, using eye contact and peers name for clear communication. Both the Snack Shack helper and each child ‘ordering’ their snack can be supported to meet communication goals. Sometimes a child sees that there is a preferred snack, but by the time they get up to make their choice, it is gone. This can be disappointing, but is another opportunity to practice how to deal with situations that are not exactly the way you would like them to be. Snack Shack Preschool

31 During circle time, a Question of the Day card is passed around circle and children ask and answer questions to/from their peers. Each child is taught that it is their turn to talk when they are holding the card. This can be done successfully with children as young as 3. They learn to get another child’s attention, to use names and eye contact, to ask questions and to answer. Prompting is used to promote full sentences and appropriate grammar. Questions are repeated for about 2 weeks, then a new question is introduced. By the end of the year, questions are chosen randomly and may be different each day. Question of the Day Preschool

32 Question of the Day...

33 Silly Faces- A social language game for preschool & kindergarten Contents: 4 face cards various facial parts (eyes, noses, mouths, ears, hair, hats) spinner to indicate needed body part Language Uses: turn-taking, requesting, labeling, commenting, asking questions For children with more developed skills: have them each be in charge of one facial part to allow for peer-to-peer social exchanges, not just child-to- adult exchanges. Social Language Games Preschool

34 Candy Land Castle A social language game for preschool & kindergarten Contents: castle various tokens in different shapes and colors 4 gingerbread game cards Language Uses:turn-taking, requesting, labeling, commenting, asking questions. Social Language Games Preschool

35 Hide-n-Go Moo by Learning Resources: can be used for early developing sounds, prepositions, animal names/sounds, basic matching Pop the Pig!: colors, requests, counting, word final stops/sounds, early developing sounds, turn taking Being a spy: take a kid around the school to spy on what everyone else is doing to make present progressive sentences, can dictate to therapist and then review for grammar Lakeshore Language Lotto pieces: used for all kinds of activities: matching, answering questions, artic, etc Language Activities Preschool

36 Play Dough-Basic but good Social activities: All the play dough can be given to one student with all the toys to another, and nothing to all the other students. It provides a great opportunity to coach social language, requests, turn taking and following directions. Vocabulary/Following Directions/Recall/Sequencing-Make a batch of play dough with students and choose targets based on the individual needs. Language Activities Preschool

37 Using an iPad to track student goals, progress, and meeting notes can be a time saver. Apps: Notability and Evernote. Create Templates in Microsoft Word and ‘Saved As’ PDF files. Store these blank templates of therapy notes, sound screening charts, conference notes, etc. can be stored in Evernote. For therapy notes, creating a sheet of 8-12 sessions of goals sheets is helpful so they don’t have to be reloaded as often. Go to Evernote, select the form needed and add it to any child’s file. Files can be sorted so students can be placed in groups based on class, grade or other grouping. Notability allows the use of a stylus and write on the iPad screen so no typing during a therapy session is necessary. PDF files such as IEPs or evaluations can also be loaded into Notability and the app has a highlighting capability so notes can be made directly on documents that are loaded. Password protect the iPad for confidentiality. Notability has a recording capability so audio recording during therapy or assessments. Pictures can also be loaded into the Notability file. Notability files are backed up automatically, and can be accessed from home or school via the Cloud. Note Taking-iPad
