Did you happen to know that two out of three teachers have been active on TpT in the last year and that over 2.7 million educators are now using TpT? It's true!
Even though these outstanding statistics are true, I think we all still know someone who hasn't taken the plunge to check TpT out yet. Yes, some educators are still unsure if they should come visit TpT for materials and if a purchase from the site is worth their hard earned money. In addition, some are not aware of the significant contributions that speech-language pathologists have made to the site. They may be a busy practicing teacher or therapist with the strong need for inexpensive materials that can be downloaded right away, but they just don't know if the materials that they will find will be beneficial for their students.
Because of this, Shanda and I decided to talk about all of the wonderful SLPs and all of the hundreds of documents that have been developed by SLPs at our state speech convention in the spring of 2016. This handout was developed to help trigger a healthy discussion about TpT and the SLPs who are actively contributing to TpT every day!
Shanda and I used it to help explain to others what TpT was all about. A lot of SLPs are creating, selling and buying awesome assessment and treatment materials every day on TpT. The reason why? Because who better to buy from than the actual person who developed a useful document to target a therapy goal than an actual SLP? Denis Ferremi, SLP summarized it best by saying, “SLPs should buy at TpT because no one knows what materials SLPs need more than actual, practicing SLPs!” We also love how Mia Reed McDaniel, SLP put it, “SLPs should visit TpT because they will hit the mother lode of affordable therapy materials, and the new activities will make therapy feel fresh again!”
The later part of this document is a list of over 300 SLP shops. There are a TON of wonderfully talented and intelligent SLPs who are creating and selling useful documents targeting speech, language and literacy on TpT. Why don’t you click on some of their shop links today and check them out! Not only do speech materials benefit speech therapy students, but they have become invaluable to many teachers, parents, early intervention specialists and many others. We create and sell materials that target over 100 topics that range from expressive and receptive language, grammar, vocabulary and phonemic awareness to speech sound disorders, fluency and articulation!
