Summer Speech Therapy Homework for Spanish-Speaking Parents

summer speech therapySend 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 – Younger Students

10 storybooks are profiled in this pdf. with activities that are fun, colorful and engaging for the young population. Vocabulary, morphology, language, and articulation are addressed in a variety of ways.

Summer Speech Therapy Activities – Older Students

Summer Speech TherapyOlder 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.

    Do you have an English translation of these so we know what we’re sending home?

      Let me get it going. I will create the English versions and/or explanations and upload them to this post. Check back early next week.

        Thank you for working on the English versions for monolinguals like me. It will certainly help me determine what to send home with which students. Can’t tell you how much we appreciate you guys providing things like this to us.

        It will be coming out this week and we appreciate your gratitude. We don’t see ourselves as any different from anyone out there. When you write “monolinguals like me” you are speaking for the entire field, for all of us. Yes I speak Spanish but I still get the Farsi, Mandarin, and Hindi evaluations. So we can never be bilingual enough. What we can do is 1) capture the good work we are doing 2) share, and 3) learn from each other. This community helps us see what we all need the most so we can research it and get it out there. We truly believe that the time has come for us highly-educated-sincere-professions to unite and solve these amazingly interesting problems that have been set before us. Have a great weekend.

        Any time. If you need anything else fill out the “1 question” at the bottom of any blog post. We look for patterns of what SLPs are needing and try to bring that information into fruition or highlight others’ good work.
        “We need your expertise! Answer this one question and help us move the field forward. Don’t underestimate the impact of your experience!”
