Welcome to our speech language therapy materials page! I will share some of our own materials and recommend some must haves for all age groups.
My professional philosophy is to keep speech language therapy as authentic as possible.
Learning happens when it is natural and meaningful. Therefore, you won't find a lot of useless worksheets or "out-of-context" games. I believe that isn't best practice and causes tedious planning.
At the end, there is a place to share your own favorites.PLEASE, PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE share your own suggestions. We all can learn! It helps us stay fresh and interested.

I want my toys to be engaging, durable, and versatile. Also, variety is key! Children have such a wide variety of interests and children learn the most while interested and engaged in functional play.
We offer some game ideas to try during therapy or to give out to your parents as weekly homework! Here is our free list:
For school age children, I try to incorporate the school curriculum as much as possible. Therefore, most of my materials compliment school material and support their learning. However, I like to throw in a few games and motivational tools just to keep the kids excited and interested :) This goes for middle school children as well. Children at this age still like to play games!

For therapy with adults, being functional is even more key since therapy is rehabilitation. Therapy and goals should be specifically tailored to a patient's life and life goals.
