Why use themes?
Using themes in your therapy sessions can provide you with a great framework to build on and can help with carryover to real life situations. With a little effort, therapy can become interesting and a lot of fun – for both you and your clients.
How can I use one theme for so many kids?
Themes can be applied to a variety of speech and language goals. Use basic games with a slight twist for speech sound activities. You can also work on vocabulary, sequencing, following directions, and writing while using a theme as your framework.
There are also quite a few early education websites that have themed ideas. Use them as inspiration for your speech and language activities.
