My Students

I am a Speech-Language Pathologist working with preschoolers who have various delays and disorders that impact their ability to communicate. My students are experiencing school for the first time! They are excited, curious, and maybe a little scared. I want to give them an enriching, exciting school experience.

I want to give my students the best environment to help develop their speech and language skills while having fun.

Many of my students have great thoughts and ideas, but have difficulty being understood or creating a clear message.

My Project

I provide speech-language services through a play-based model as children learn most effectively when they're engaged in fun, dynamic activities. Our speech department is in need of motivating, engaging games that can be used as therapy tools, and as reinforcing activities throughout the session.

For example, many children love the anticipation of Pop-up Pirate and will ask to play it multiple times in a row.

This makes it an ideal toy to use when practicing repetitions of certain sounds, or when teaching how to use full sentences to make requests.

We also need some literacy-based toys to help teach children basic language skills, like how to answer "who, what, where" questions. Using beloved characters (like Pete the Cat) and appealing visuals helps support the students' learning in this area.
