Have You Seen the APP, “What’s in the Bag?”

I have done activities during speech therapy sessions where I brought a bag with all kinds of things inside. I’d put things in like animals, vehicles, action figures, fake food etc. Then I would describe something in the bag and have the student try to guess. This activity was usually a big hit, lots of fun and I got the students to practice answering wh questions, describe objects and use […]

Simple, Simple, Simple and effective are the four things that I like most about the App I’m highlighting this week.

Do you get as frustrated as I do at times when you are looking for an app for older students and can’t find much? I love the variety of apps I can get for our younger students.

Maybe, on the other hand, you have a student who is enthralled with electronics and will do anything for you that involves an iPad. If you said yes to […]

Sometimes having a break in the usual schedule is a great time to work more intensively on some things like potty training. The app, The Potty Show, allows you to highlight all the parts of this experience. Pair this visual with the book, The Potty Journey by Judith A.

Do You Have a Dream that Your Child with Special Needs Can Live Independently? You’ve Got to See This!

I remind our teachers every chance I get to think of their student at age 25. Where will he/she be? At home on their parent’s sofa playing video games or living independently with a desirable paying job? This question helps teachers and other staff to reconsider things like letting undesirable behaviors continue, helping students too much with basic living skills, not pushing hard enough for functional academics, not insisting on […]
