When scheduling speech therapy sessions, I'm not able to pull students from reading or math instruction, which means that many of my students are missing science to attend speech therapy. What a shame, since we know that learning about STEM is important to their education -- just as learning how to communicate effectively is too!
What if you could combine a science lesson with speech therapy? How better than to do a STEM challenge of science experiment during speech therapy?
15 STEM Challenges in Speech Therapy is perfect for speech-language pathologists, and special education teachers too, to have kids tackle goals like:
1) Sequencing events
2) Answering WH questions
3) Increasing Science & Math Vocabulary
4) Defining functional vocabulary words
5) Describing events both orally and in writing
