It’s Friday before spring break for us so I am getting all my speech home practice pages together. I love Super Duper Inc.’s Holiday and Seasonal book for quick open-ended, homework printables. I always encourage home practice once the child has mastered the skill in our therapy room. It is so important to begin transferring their “good speech” into other environments. While some speech therapists say speech therapy vacations are good (i.e. no practice), I still think it is good to keep students in the habit of practicing while they are on a short break. And by practice, I mean just a few minutes a day to focus on their target sounds with a helper. And it’s really not the end of the world if they don’t get around to it. I know what its like when families travel or have really busy weeks planned.
I hope everyone enjoys their spring break! We have family coming for Easter and that means watching basketball, cooking, eating, going for walks and loving the 70 degree weather we are having! What are your spring break plans?
