Highlights from the 2017-2018 School Year

So, parenting a toddler is a whole new concept for me and this blog and my other speechie media got away from me, so here are some highlights from last school year!  I hope to better document what we do more consistently for the 2018-2019 school year... I can't believe it begins very shortly!

Please note, each activity that we do highlights and targets a specific students' IEP goals.  Whether that be for language, speech, fluency, or voice deficits (and more), each activity addresses areas that students need to improve upon and strengthen.  I try to offer language-rich activities that utilize SLP made products, DOK questioning and reasoning, level 1-2 (and higher) vocabulary concepts, and many more.

Here we go!

I started the year off by doing a PECS level 2 intensive training.  I loved it and consider it the best CEUs I have ever earned. Highly recommended!



My awesome graduate student (and now CCC-CF!!!) Olivia Kassinger doing her thing while targeting some fall-themed skills:









We also targeted problem solving, predicting, and asking/answering questions by doing a fun Christmas-themed science experiment with candy canes!








We worked on learning basic prepositional concepts by working on a functional task to create a fun craftivity!



Christmas was filled with following multi-step directions, literacy concepts, and more!






We also work on homework once a month in small packets with big rewards if they get turned in!


 I love using technology and the EET system to work on vocabulary concepts with students:


That's it for now but I will post more later! I missed you guys and hope to resume and refresh the Speechie Evie blog soon!

Happy New Year

Happy new year my speechies!  Stay tuned, I hope to post a Fall 2017 semester recap for you so that you can see all of the amazing things that students did for their first semester at RIS this year.  Here are a few sneak peeks:












I promise I will be posting more pictures and a detailed recap of each activity and the skills targeted as soon as possible!  For now, we will continue to also document the new semester and all of the fun and amazing things we do together for a future recap as well!
