Here is a freebie from Lets Talk Speech Language Pathology that works on both receptive and expressive language!!  Download it here

Who doesn't love a good resource freebie???

This medical resource from Sublime Speech is a must-have.  We found this to be quite useful when reading reports from a clients pediatrician or a specialty clinic.  Download it here.

Another great resource is brought to you by Teach Speech 365.  Although we are not in the classroom often, we definitely feel that this is a great resource regardless and definitely would be considered invaluable to those that are.  Find it here.  

 

Looking for some activities for St. Patrick's Day??  Check out these Freebies:

From Speech is Sweet, there is an activity to work on pronouns, download it here.

It's "Freebie-licious Friday Roundup" where we will be sharing our favorite freebies from the prior week.

We hope that you guys have been taking full advantage of these not-to-be-missed freebies.  This week we are bringing you 11 awesome freebies from some really amazing bloggers!

Let's begin with some much needed resource guides.  The first one is from Scanlon Speech Therapy and is a cheat sheet for toddlers in need of speech therapy.  Download it here.  It is a great list of language stimulation and modeling techniques for parents of toddlers.  We also found a progress report template from Schoolhouse Talk that you can find here.  

I am always looking for a good progress report template and felt that this one encompassed all I put in a progress report.  We also liked this Is-Are-Was-Were flow chart from Speech Therapy Major Speech Minor.    

We really loved these two unique freebies from Erik Raj about 25 ways to praise a student.  Definitely some great reminders to help us get away from our go-to "Good Job" and Jenna Rayburn's I can statement.  It is always helpful to have students know exactly what they are doing in therapy.    

We found a few fabulous Articulation freebies with Karen Pritchetts' Sight words for z final position flashcards that you can find hereSpeech Sprouts Quack-Go-Back game for articulation that you can download here and Natalie Snyders' R-blend freebie.  

Two of my all time faves were Alissa Holloway's Speech Therapy Visual Cue flip book and Speech Therapy's Volume Meter.  I loved the visual cue flip book because I could see this really helping out therapy for those apraxia kiddos on my caseload and I was happy to see clear pictures and the ability to put them together to form short words.  The Volume meter is something that I love to use with ASD kiddos and my school age voice kiddos and I thought this one was definitely more kid friendly then the one I am currently using.  

One of the things that we are always looking for is homework worksheets.  We found this freebie that can be used with any articulation sound by Mindy Olsen Pizzey that you can download here.  

Don't forget to share the freebie love.  Do you know of some amazing freebies that we haven't included??  Maybe one that you have made and want to share?  Feel free to add them to the comments below.  We request that they be activities related to speech therapy and that they are FREE activities only!!

We also found a freebie for a Wh question visual support and wanted to include this one in the roundup this week as I really find a benefit with using these type of visual boards with my kiddos that are working on wh questions.  It's from Lisa Geary and you can find it here.  And so you have something free to use this visual support with download these wh question cards from Miss Speechie.

What child doesn't light up when they get a diploma at completion of therapy.  It lets them know how hard they worked and how far they came.  Super Power Speech knows this and made a very thoughtful one that she is offering it as a free download.  Grab it here
