Ep. 78 Pros and Cons of Using Themed Therapy

Hey Hey Hey SLPs! Today we’re going to be talking about the pros and cons of a theme-based approach. A theme-based approach uses a specific topic or category to frame concepts and language. And so when you pick a theme, it allows you to provide a context for your students to understand the information and build background knowledge with the materials that you use.

 

 

The Themed Therapy Planning: How-To Course for the Busy SLP is officially here until March 17th. You can get all the tools and strategies you need to help planning a theme-based approach easier. No more analysis paralysis when making decisions from your caseload.

 

The modules include in-depth information about themed therapy, how to pick a theme, organizational support, teaching evidence-based practices while using a theme, therapy in action, and support with using frameworks to plan out sessions for your caseload. 

 

AND, you get over 5 Clinical Maintainance Hours for your license and certification.

 

If this sounds like something you need NOW, then head to www.themedtherapyslp.com to grab your spot.

Still on the fence about themed therapy? Come to my FREE LIVE webinar happening tonight, March 8th at 5pm PST/8pm EST where I will be showing you a simple framework that makes planning therapy by themes for your elementary caseload effortless.
