I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the Clifford books. Not only are they engaging story, but they contain great vocabulary, cause-effect, narrative structure, and more!
For fun and engaging speech therapy session this Valentine's day, use our Clifford's First Valentine's Day story companion to target a wide range of speech and language goals, naturally.
Theory Behind The Materials
If you are new here, I'll let you in on a little secret. If you are a veteran, welcome back! Please review the theory so you can benefit most from these materials.
Reading is one of THE BEST ways to target speech and language skills as well as many other skills for almost any child.
However, in order to maximize time during a therapy session AND create a functional home program, story companions are necessary.
> They support learning through activities and use of visuals.
> They help students with varying levels of language and speech skills participate in the same activity.
> They are fun!
> They can be used over and over and over again!
> They can create thematic therapy programs
This companion targets:
> Vocabulary learning
> Answering Questions
> Story Retell
> Following Directions
> Social Skills
What's Included In The Speech Therapy Story Companion
> Vocabulary cards
> Vocabulary learning templates
> Categorization handout
> Story retell templates with and without visuals
> Story sequencing cards
> Who, where, when, and what happened cards
> Sentence strips to adapt books and/or answer questions
> Following directions activities
> Make a Valentine Activity
> Articulation lists
> Functional articulation practice ideas
Consider The Membership Program...It Pays For Itself
Since these story companions are:
> so popular
> easy to use for both parents and professionals
> extremely beneficial for children
I have decided to create ONE storybook companion PER MONTH for the membership portion of this site. Therefore, if you join Speech Therapy Talk Services, LLC, you will have one NEW storybook companion per month plus all the old story companions (plus the other hundreds of pages of materials, games, and guides).
Since story companions are $5 each and our membership is only $5.99, joining pretty much pays for itself.
Not only will you have access to story companions, you will have access to:
> Articulation guides (Spanish and English)
> Articulation cards
> Functional language games
> Parent handouts (Spanish and English)
> Documentation templates
> Quick print therapy materials for grammar, vocabulary, story retell, following directions, and more!
> RTI materials (screenings, handouts, classroom strategies)
> Motivational tools
> Visuals schedules
> and more!
So...for only $1 extra dollar, you will have access to all of this PLUS one new monthly story companion.
