Fall Word Search for /s/!

Today is the first day of school for the kids in my town! Since my babe is not getting on the big yellow bus just yet, we spent the morning watching the kids in our neighborhood venture off to their first day of school. There is nothing more exciting to a toddler than seeing a bus, am I right?

As most TpT'ers will tell you, their products typically come out of necessity and are based on their classes/students/clients. Today's activity is no exception!

I was looking for some cute articulation activities to do with an older client this afternoon and couldn't find anything I really loved. This particular child loves word games and brain games - so what better than a word search!?

The only issue I ever have with word searches is that it's hard to get a ton of trials in because the kids are so focused on finding the word. I decided to add some boxes next to each word so that the child has to say the sound a certain amount of times at the word level, phrase level, or sentence level in order to search for the sound.

You can find this product for /s/ initial, medial, and final on TpT HERE.

Happy Fall!

Winter Adapted Book FREEBIE!

With the crazy weather here in NY (see house pic nightmare of snow!) I wanted to share my adapted free book for winter clothing! This will be one of those short, late-night posts, so I apologize! I wanted to make sure this one got out to you guys!

I created this for use with an AAC device, but it really can be utilized for so much more! I've also used this activity to target vocabulary with an ESL student, following directions with a student targeting auditory comprehension, and as an introduction to the topic of winter!

The options are endless! Plus, I wanted to make this a freebie since I know I have been using tons of awesome freebies on TpT from fellow bloggers - gotta give back!

Halloween Following Directions Print-N-Go Packet

Just a quick check-in before I wander off into Sunday chili and sweatpants! I wanted to share this following directions packet I've been using for the month of October. I have a lot of kinders this year who came in with following directions goals. I've been trying to target them each session with fun, coloring crafts each time so they can see their work.
This packet is four pages, black and white, and FREE! It includes following 1 and 2 step directions, following varied directions, and following conditional directions. All the sheets are halloween themed and of course black and white for low-ink usage! Check out this scarily fun packet HERE on TpT! 

FREE Parent Handout for "Self-Talk" and "Parallel Talk"!

This summer I pledged that I would work with more of the little little guys in my private practice - early intervention and preschool age. I love this age group and really missed working with them (currently I see preK through second grade in a school setting). Working in a home-based environment is incredible because of all of the great parent-training we get to do. I love being able to explain and show exactly what I'm doing and the strategies I'm using.

As all SLPs know, with this age group we are doing a lot of self and parallel talk. Sometimes I leave my half-hour sessions out of breath! Of course, talking is never an issue for an SLP!! I find that my parents are talking to their child, however their language needs to be modified, or they need to present things differently (i.e., giving options to elicit more language vs. yes/no questions).

I created this parent handout to familiarize my parents with what I'm doing and to emphasize effective carryover. I like to say …
