Now is the time to embrace technology and implement it into your lessons with virtual and in-classroom students. Every child will be thrilled with the variety and familiarity. Take a look at some of these ideas:

1. Parent Involvement: Sending videos between speech therapy lessons or teaching online will reach parents more than the occasional meeting at the school. Parents can see you in action and model how an SLP asks questions and encourages the students.

2. Videos: Use commercials, movie clips, and learning videos to teach your students. You can use the videos to work on the students’ vocabulary, articulation, recalling of details, and pointing out inferences. There are so many questions to get their brains thinking after showing a short video clip.

3. No-Print Activities: Many resources are available online that use interactive worksheets that require no printing. Few families have printers in their homes, so it is unrealistic to require printing in your lessons. Provide easy fill-in activities that will sharpen the student’s typing skills as well.

4. Game: There are endless games online that can be accessed for your speech therapy lessons. Choose an online matching game including works with s-blends, articulation games, or more. You can make speech therapy fun and collaborative with online activities. Children love the playful elements of these games and can learn and develop at the same time.

It doesn’t matter whether you are teaching your students virtually or are able to meet face to face, switch things up with technology. You can personalize each lesson to their preferences. And most importantly, make the student look forward to speech therapy.
