My Students

I am a speech therapist at an elementary school campus and work with students ranging from 3-11 years of age. All the students who receive speech therapy have a variety of needs and goals. Most of my students are working on developing their language or articulation skills.

I love using books in therapy to expose my students to literature.

Books allow the flexibility to target each individual students' goal(s) in a fun and functional way. In addition, books support other literacy skills needed for my students to be successful in and out of the classroom.

My Project

The goal of this project is to gain access to more books for the children who participate in speech therapy and our elementary school. The plan is to houses these books in the library for all Mustangs to access and to allow the speech therapist (me) to checkout the books to use as part of therapy.

These books will be used during speech therapy to target articulation skills by providing auditory bombardment and opportunities to practice words from the book with the students target sounds.

For example, the book "Go Away Big Green Monster" allows students to hear the G sound multiple times and practice that target sound multiple times throughout a therapy session. In addition, books will allow for fluency and voice practice during therapy sessions by having the students retell sections of the book using a fluency strategy or using adequate breath support to produce adequate vocal quality.

Books will also support language development both with the students who attend speech therapy as well as other students who attend our school. Books are powerful and can provide exposure to a variety of sentence structures, vocabulary words, and contribute to the love of reading. When targeting language in therapy, books can provide opportunities for students to target the following speech therapy goals: "wh" questions, sentence development, inferencing, predicting, main idea identification, story retelling, vocabulary development, problem solving, story grammar elements, and much more.
