If you get brain fog trying to remember targets for your student’s speech and language goals when you are using a toy in therapy, you need the toy companion cheat sheet guides

There are over 30 toy and game cheat sheet companions to help you have pre-selected targets. I am in the process of creating more, so by June 2022, there will be big updates. Which means the price is gonna go up. If you grab this resource now, you get all updates for free.

 Adapting your toys and games to cover goals can be a great way to increase engagement while meaningfully make progress with the skills your student’s need to practice.

It’s a lot to juggle in a mixed group or with large caseloads. That’s why I wanted something that could help myself and other SLPs conserve brain energy so that by 3pm when the bell rings, I still had some brain cells left to finish that report that’s due the next day .
