Product Review: Rainbow Scratch Paper

This scratch paper never ceases to amaze students young and old.  By simply scratching the paper with the wooden stick provided and a beautiful rainbow appears underneath.  This can be used as a reinforcer or for writing down the words and sounds that they are working on.  This activity is low in stress and maintenance for the therapist and highly motivating for the student.

Product Review: Articulation maps

This game was presented by an SLP at a staff meeting.  The concept is so cute and original.  Pair this with some mini cars and have students practice giving directions to each other



“Make a left on Red Road to get to the Restaurant”

Order some mini-cars on Amazon by clicking here or pick some up at your local dollar store.

Product Review: Hisss by Gamewright

This game could have been created as a product for SLP’s.  It serves as the perfect reinforcement for /s/ drills during sessions.  In this simple, elegant card game, players match colors and and make snakes from heads to tails. Long snakes, short snakes, purple, yellow and rainbow snakes. Finish a snake and add it to your snake pit. The player with the most snakes at the end of the game wins.

App Review: ChatterPix

 Snap a picture of any item.  Drag a line across the picture.  The line now functions as a mouth.  Record any sounds or words to go along with it.

Target Goals: item-sound associations (phone-ringing, cow-moo), imitation-( baba/book), describing (have the student describe the photo “I’m yellow, I’m long, and I’m used for writing”).

Prep: Snap pictures before the session
