Language development for children with special learning needs is best taught when exposure to a variety of mediums, pictures and objects is available. Having a variety of animals, people, foods, furniture, and musical instruments is a great way to teach vocabulary, categories, function of nouns, and for teaching 'wh' questions such as who, what, where, and what happened. These items can be used to expand existing vocabulary and to help generalize the names of pictures to objects and real world applications. Miniature objects are fun, engaging, and offer many opportunities for language development as well as targeting sounds in articulation practice. Speech and language therapy not only targets the way a child produces words, but also focuses on the purposes of communication. Many of my students are unable to communicate their basic wants and needs as they don't yet have the ability to communicate through words. Activities need to be simple, enticing, and able to switch out on a dime depending on the child's attention span. Providing children with educational, enticing, and functional reinforces allows a speech session to change from minimal to dynamic. Office materials such as a laminator, dry erase boards and organizational materials allow for preservation of pictures and activities as well as easy access to the myriad of supplies that a speech therapist needs to have access to in a moments notice.
