“Escape the Speech Room" was designed to introduce the students to various aspects of communication with missions in Articulation, Language, Fluency, Voice and Pragmatics. While it can certainly be used any time of the year, it is perfect for a beginning of the school year team building activity or during Better Speech and Hearing Month. I recently used it at a Career Day in an elementary school. The students had a blast and they learned a bunch along the way!
Escape the Speech Room is broken up into 5 “missions” which are broken up into centers. Each of the 5 Missions reflect on an area within our scope of practice: Articulation, Language, Voice, Fluency, and Pragmatics. Detailed instructions for preparation and assembly are included to ensure that your activity goes off without a hitch.
Each mission contains a Debriefing Sheet with information about that particular area. It also includes a list of materials that they need as well as a description of their mission. Each mission uncovers a key to the help unlock the individual padlocks on the box. Once the groups solve their missions, they come together to learn about some of our work settings and decode the final clue.
When the students complete their challenge, they fill out a Reflections sheet to show what they learned and share it with the other students. This allows students to learn about the different centers or areas of speech-language pathology by reading their fellow classmates' reflections.
