Every speech-language pathologist has a story to tell, and this one is mine. As a school-aged child, I despised the fact that it was almost always mandatory for me to remain seated as I learned in elementary school. In retrospect, I felt like an animal locked in a cage, and now, years later, I see the same frustration in the eyes of my speech students. They usually don't want to stay in their seats during speech therapy, and why should I force them to?
I want students to get up and move around!
My mind is curious, my spirit is adventurous, and my body is everything but still. I am an educator that believes in the power of using our arms and our legs during all learning instances, especially during speech therapy. Children, by nature, are active learners and this is the reason I have spent the last two years writing a slew of hilarious child-friendly dares. As a practicing speech-language pathologist, I consistently ask my students to do child-friendly dares during speech therapy and they can't get enough of 'em!
