Speech Therapy Badges Uses
Of course, you can use these speech therapy badges any way you see fit. However, I have 2 recommended uses. First, you must print out the needed badges and then the badge charts. I personally like to laminate them so they last longer (save trees).

Therapy Feedback (recommended use #1)
Run a therapy session or home practice per usual.
When a child has a correct response (i.e., answers a "who" question during story reading task), then child receives a "who" badge for the remainder of the task or the remainder of the session.
Either have the child place the badge in front of him or her and place it on a "badge board."
Record Progress Over Time (recommended use #2)
A child receives a "badge board" at the beginning of a home program or therapy program.
As a child meets a goal (i.e., able to say /k/ in conversation), he/she earns an articulation K badge to place on board.
The child keeps adding badges when able
Theory Behind Badges
The main purpose of using these badges is important.

They are made to:

Keep children aware of goals
Demonstrate progress visually
Be a constant reminder of the purpose of therapy
By using badges and badge boards, a child reviews speech therapy goals before and after each session. This is VERY important! A child MUST know what he/she is working on to make adequate progress! Speech therapy is serious, medical business (not just fun and games :)) after all.

This idea is based on the important theory self-assessment learning. Children who are able to self-assess progress and areas of need are able to become responsible for their own learning. Click our free self-assessment learning page for more information and a free self-assessment tool.

Also, badges are a visual reminder of progress and children love earning them. This keeps children motivated during therapy and decrease distracting behaviors.
