Let's Talk About It: Baltimore City Schools SLP

My students need adapted materials and hands-on learning opportunities to improve their speech and language skills.

My Students

The life of a Baltimore City speech-language pathologist is never dull! I work with students between the ages of 4-21 with a wide range of disabilities, including Autism, Speech/Language Impairments, Intellectual Disabilities, Learning Disabilities, and Other Health Impairments.

One commonality amongst all my students is that they appear to enjoy and learn best from hands-on and multisensory learning opportunities.

Due to the lack of resources within this large district, materials which are needed to help my students reach their goals are not readily available.

My Project

The majority of the materials used during my speech-therapy sessions are either made by me or need to be adapted in order for my students to be able to use them. I can use the paper provided by the school, but don't have access to any of the other materials I need to make these items. I have found that any materials printed in color are much more engaging for students and are beneficial for students that I work with with visual impairments. Unfortunately, we do not have access to a color printer at our school. I use the lamination sheets for durability and then the velcro tabs make the materials interactive. The students are able to move pieces while we read which helps them to be active participants.

Using good quality materials will help me be able to use these books from year to year with many different students!

I can use these books to target many different skills, including concepts, following directions, answering questions, vocabulary, grammar, creating sentences, and using AAC devices.
