Speech Therapy Activities

Speech therapy activities should be functional and meaningful and we practice what we preach at Speech Therapy Talk Services, LLC!

Before exploring this section, I want to explain a little bit about my professional philosophy and what to expect. This isn't your typical speech therapy site...Find out why below!

Speech Therapy Activities: Making Therapy Meaningful Again

Speech therapy should be meaningful. That' is obvious but not always true!

To make speech therapy meaningful:

  • Parents MUST be involved. If you are a parent, click here to find out how to get more involved!
  • Therapy shouldn't be all about worksheets
  • For young children, therapy should be PLAY
  • For older children, therapy should involve the school curriculum and functional activities

To get speech therapy back on the right track, I created some MEANINGFUL speech therapy activities for all areas of development.

Of course, this is always "underdevelopment" and I will be adding to it as I create more.
