Have you collected and created a variety of visuals for your speech therapy sessions that you just can’t live without? I did and the pile just kept growing. Do you wish they were all uniform and ready to grab and go? This has been a goal of mine for many years and I finally created my most used visuals for speech therapy on handy strips. I know they will aid my therapy as I push services into the classroom.
Included in this Essential Visuals for Speech Therapy pack:
Credits (pgs. 1 & 2)
Contents (pg. 3)
Product in Use (pgs. 4 & 5)
Cover strips (pgs. 6-11) Use color covers (pgs. 6-8) or black & white covers (pgs. 9-11) as cover cards for common visual strips. Suggested categories/groupings for your strips are suggested below; however, you can organize visual strips any way you choose!
Essential Visuals title cover and Carrier Phrase covers (pg. 12) to use with my FREEBIE carrier phrases. You can download these visuals here:

Suggested assembly: Cut out selected cover cards (pgs. 6-11) for desired groupings. Cut out visual strips (pgs. 13-23) by cutting apart each strip (4 strips per page). Tabs are on the right side indicating the topic for each visual strip. Sort visuals into your desired categories and combine with selected cover. Secure with an elastic band or punch holes in each corner and attach with a metal ring. It is suggested to print covers on cardstock and laminate each cover and visual strip. Covers can be arranged in order according to bottom tabs.
Alternate assembly: Print visual strips on colored cardstock. Laminate, if desired, or copy multiple copies for individual student use. I scaled the printing to 80% and store visuals in an accordion file (slightly larger than a coupon file).
