Horseshoe Table for Speech and Language Theapy
My students need a horseshoe shaped table to help improve modeling for speech
I am Speech Language Pathologist who works with children with many different diagnosis. My caseload includes Autism Disorder, Down's Syndrome, Intellectual Disorder (these children have an IQ bellow 70), Cerebral Palsy, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), Developmental Delay (DD), Language Impaired, and Speech Impaired.
All of these students love to engage in alternative learning activities.
Many students demonstrate difficulty with gross motor movement, fine motor movement, and motor planning. These affect their ability to be well regulated and learn to their fullest potential. Despite all the difficulty they have at school, my student always come to school with a smile on their face and motivation to learn. They love an opportunity to participate in activities that involve music and movement.
Many of my students have difficulty with attention. They are distracted easily with the items in the classroom, things they hear outside, and what they other students are doing.
During speech and language therapy, my students greatly benefit from models I am providing.
By using a horseshoe shaped table, I am going to be able to maximize the attention of my students. A horseshoe shape table will help my students by putting them in a position where they are immediately looking at me instead of the student sitting across from them. This table will also help me be physically closer to all of my students in a group, and be able to provide more individualized support.
