I am a school based speech therapist serving students in 2nd-5th grades. This is a blog to document and share materials and ideas for speech therapy using technology. My hopes are that having the blog will motivate me to be creative and make new materials using a variety of resources as well as motivate and inspire others.
I had a great time this morning with one of my students with Autism who loves toys and puppets. She is always requesting to play with something so I got creative with letting her play with another "non-speech therapy" app. Using the free app Sock Puppets (by Smith Micro Software Inc.) and some of my traditional SuperDuper Inc. "Who" Cards we created a short dialog where one puppet would ask the question and the other puppet would answer. She thought this was great. I got to work on the concept I wanted and she got to play with the puppets. Replaying the video just added to the reinforcement of the correct answers. We created several videos, this one is our last one and we are re-practicing the cards we already did to make it perfect practice! I hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed playing!
