Ep. 58 Three Activities You Can Do for Articulation Carryover

 Hey Hey Hey SLPs! This week I hope to empower you a little bit with some easy activities that you can do for some of your students who are working on articulation carry over.  One of the pieces to that puzzle is keeping the kids motivated. The theme song for this week has to be, Imagine Dragons “Make me a Believer”. Really, we got to get those kids motivated to believe that they can gradually get their sound and conversation.

 

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • Make a conversation script of a conversation your students would be having on campus, or in their community.
  • Use How-To YouTube videos with your students’ sounds
  • Use wordless short videos to have students create dialogue, summarize the video, answer wh-questions,etc

Ep. 57: Five Fall Books to work on CORE Vocabulary

Hey Hey Hey SLPs! This week I am going to be sharing 5 fall-themed books you can use to target CORE vocabulary. With students who are using alternative or augmentative communication, there are a CORE set of words that make up 70-90% of what we say on a daily basis. This small set of CORE vocabulary is relevant across a lot of contexts and can have many meanings.When selecting books for your fall-themed lessons, I have some books that can be great for targeting CORE vocabulary.

Sign Up for the 5-day AAC CORE Vocabulary Challenge starting October 11-15th on Facebook. By the end of the challenge implementing CORE vocabulary in therapy will feel a LOT less overwhelming because we will be sharing easy ideas for how to adapt materials and activities you already have to target CORE vocabulary.

 

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt by Steve Metzger – great for targeting “GO,” “Look,” “see,” 
  • Run, Turkey, Run by Diane Mayr you can work on “yes,” “no,” “go,” and “away.”
  • Apple Trouble by Ragnhild Scamell is a great story that you can work on the CORE vocabulary “not” because the apple won’t come off no matter what the hedgehog does. You can also work on the CORE vocabulary “on,” “push,” “pull,” “laugh,” “help”
  • Apple Picking Day by Candice Ransom is good for early readers as the text is shorter and can be good for “go,” “see,” “big/small,” “up,down,” “eat,” “no like, “fast,” “more,”
  • Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman would be great for “pull,” “big,” “mine,”
