From the beginning, Speech Therapy Ideas was designed to be an online resource for Speech-Language Pathologists to get free speech and language therapy ideas. Recently we started to wonder which therapy ideas were the most popular. As we expected, many of the top therapy ideas were specific to a holiday or season. Since those ideas are only used in your therapy sessions certain times of year, we filtered them out to find the top 5 speech and language therapy ideas that you can use any time of the year.
We are committed to continue providing free speech and language therapy ideas on our website and by email to those on our free mailing list. A membership is only required to access to our entire collection of printable materials. So be sure your SLP friends and colleagues know about us by sharing our website with them on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Google+, or YouTube.

2. Articulation Stories for Any Sound
Yeah! Your client can successfully use his target sound in words and sentences! Now what? It’s time to take it to the next level. If the child can read, I recommend having him read sound-loaded stories before jumping straight into conversational speech practice.

4. Pocket Chart Memory Game for Speech or Language Therapy
Here is a fun twist on a classic memory game that gets the students up and involved. You can play it with a pocket chart, put the cards up on a board held with magnets, or simply lay the cards out on the table.
