My Students

I work with Preschool through 6th grade students who have speech and language issues. Some of them don't even talk, and some have articulation and language issues. Articulation practice can be boring and repetitive. To counteract this boredom, I try to make speech a fun and engaging place where they can both practice their articulation skills and have fun doing it.

My students attend a neighborhood school in a low socioeconomic area.

I work with both general education and special education students. They are bright, wonderful students who love to learn even with their many difficulties. My students have various articulation issues ranging from the simple misprosuction of a sound to being completely intelligible. They love coming to speech and working hard to overcome their difficulties. To increase speech practice, we play games after we work hard!

My Project

These materials will help benefit my students from TK to 6th grade achieve their speech and language goals. My students have articulation delays, and expressive and receptive language delays. The materials will help make coming to speech fun, because we often do a lot of drill and practice to help them meet their goals. The materials will be used in a variety of ways to reach my student's individual goals to help them make gains in their ability to communicate and to improve their social interactions with others around them.

Communication is the key to social interactions and when students experience a communication barrier such as stuttering, articulation delays and expressive language disorders, their social interactions with others are severely impacted.

Articulation practice can often be very boring since in order to make progress, the best way to meet their goals is repetion and lots of it! These board games will help make the task a little more fun because there is a reward at the end for practicing their sounds. To make the students want to practice, I often use games in the classroom to keep my students engaged. These new games will help me do exactly that!
