Send out these summer speech therapy ideas and hit the beach knowing your students are progressing at home!
We all know how difficult it is to communicate with parents when they speak another language. Conversely, we know how beneficial it is to provide parents with summer speech therapy materials to keep their child improving across the summer.
What to do?
We built homework packets to address a variety of goals and divided them by ages into three groups. The activities are developed around common storybooks that are easily found at most public libraries.

Summer Speech Therapy Activities – Older Students
Older students have definite opinions on what they want to read. In this packet we have general activities and guidelines that can be applied to any book. Older students (my children at least!) have an incredible ability to fill their time with anything but work so we have also included a schedule so that they can decide when they are going to do these activities. As long as an older student thinks it is their idea, they will accomplish anything.
