Dr. Eureka is a relatively new game from Blue Orange Games. You can use it in your speech and language therapy room to not only target various speech and language skills but to also target motor planning and fine motor skills. It was a hit with my students, and I'm sure it will be a hit with yours, too! Read my Dr. Eureka game review in this post.

Blue Orange Games makes some really fantastic games – think Spot It! I love using games in therapy and was thrilled when they asked if I could check out one of their newest games – Dr. Eureka. I was lucky to get it for the end of the school year, right when my kiddos were […]

Dr. Eureka Game Review

Superfight the game has been a big addition to my secondary speech therapy for middle schoolers. Oh middle school… There is so much distrust at this age, especially at the beginning of the school year. So many of my students don’t want to come, get embarrassed, or are just “over” speech by this age. I […]

Using SuperFight the Game in Speech and Language Therapy

The longer I’m in this field, the more I realize I just love complete curriculums and their addition to my arsenal of “tools”. I love how they are consistent for my students year to year and provide such a complete way to target a skill. Braidy the Storybraid is one of the most useful tools you […]

Erin Condren Planners for SLPs

The Big Book of Exclamations is a book that every SLP needs to have in their therapy room! It's especially helpful for SLPs who work with kids in birth to 3, and it's a great resource to show parents. You'll absolutely love this book!

The Big Book of Exclamations is a book written by an SLP! I love this book, but it can be hard to find now. There is a sequel, The Big Book of Exclamations 2 that is great as well and a little easier to find! I love that it features more photo-realistic pictures with diverse […]

executive functioning in speech therapy - unstuck and on target

You know what really grinds my gears? Hearing professionals say that a student no longer needs intervention and services because “they know it all, they just refuse to use it” regarding things like organization, impulse control, regulation, and social skills.

  AAC Language Lab: lesson plans and materials? Too good to be true? It’s not! AAC is one of my biggest passions in this field. I love, love, love it. However, I like to mass lesson plan each week. I plan a minimal number of activities and try to use them with the majority of my […]

For some reason, I find myself constantly running out of activities to target following directions. Especially activities that can be used year round! I recently implemented centers in several of my groups and love having an “app station” for students to use my iPad. Enter in Seasonal Directions, a great app that I’ve used a […]

“The dreaded ‘r’.” I hear this phrase almost daily from SLPs – in person, in forums, from my friends, from everybody. Why is ‘r’ so hard? I like to tell parents of the kiddos that I work with that there are SO many variations of ‘r’! If you feel this way, you definitely need to […]
