Hi! My speech materials self-assessment tool is one of my favorite materials that I have ever created! It can be used with all students and has made such a difference in my student's progress. Seriously!
By having each student assess their own learning as well as quickly remind them of their goals, I couldn't believe how fast my students made progress. It is actually kind of obvious.....but not always easy to do. With this tool, it will be easy!
This speech therapy self-assessment tool allows, you, the therapist and your students to quickly review individual goals before each session and then fill out a quick assessment at the end of each session while discussing how it went. This 30 second review is SOOOOO helpful. It is a great reminder for each student of WHY they are in speech and what he/she needs to be working on. I think we all can get lost in the fun of speech, adults too ;)!
It also helps students to begin to take ownership over their learning. They can start to grasp how to know if they are being successful and what true learning really looks like. It can translate into a child becoming a more motivated learner (not just going through the motions!).
First, open the self-assessment guide below. I printed off 5 or 6 copies and laminated them (this step will save some trees!).
The page with the questions is what the child will use to assess their learning and the colored circles is a visual system that helps all students be able to participate in the self assessment process, even kindergarten, non-readers students. Attached some velcro to the visuals and to the question sheet so students can easily stick on their answers (this is motivating within itself). That is it!

Before each session begins, hand out the laminated speech materials self-assessment guide. Quickly write in each student's individual goal at the top with the children present. Then, put the sheets aside.
During the last 5 minutes of the session, read through each question on the sheet and have each student pick their responses and velcro them to their sheet. Once every student has completed that step, review the responses and discusses what you would have picked and why.
That's it! Enjoy!
Okay! We have a few options:
