Speech-Language Carryover

One of my goals this year was to increase my collection of carryover activities and to do better at sending home plenty of home practice with my students.  I put together a collection of all the carryover/home practice activities and handouts I have been using this year! 
(Spoiler alert: I use a lot of astrobrights paper!) If you are interested in any of these activities for your kiddos, I have linked all the files (a few freebies are included!)

These are new this year and so far they have been great to send home after an IEP meeting when we've developed new goals for a new language skill.  I love brochures in general (you'll see a couple more in this post) and think they are super easy to print and send.  I also like how they are part instructional and part practice. 

I have had these for a while.  They used to be called Speech Sound Homework.  Over the years I have tweaked and updated them as needed. 

I have three sets of calendars I use, the school-year set, the FREE winter break set, and the summer break set.  All have calendars for fluency, articulation, language, communication, and pragmatics. The activities do not vary too much from week to week.  This was intentional to help encourage carryover and develop a routine for practice. 

These were the first set of brochures I created and I have used them so much!  I hand them out whenever we begin a new sound or a student is new to articulation therapy. 

These were created to handout in between annual review meetings or progress reports when I have had a parent ask for ways to help or check-in with their student's progress. 

These are very new and I created them with parents in mind.  They have several instructional pages for parents to help when working with their children.  They also have practice pages with targeted words/pictures or strategies for students to complete too. Over the years, parents have asked frequently for a "workbook" to help them with their speech progress and I finally put them together.  So far I have posted one workbook for each articulation sound and a fluency workbook for stuttering.  

Make and Take Therapy Activities
Over the last several years I have tried to incorporate more therapy activities that are "make and take" for my students.  These are a collection of activities or printables that we can use/play with during therapy and then they can be taken home for practice at home as well.  In the picture below I have included my Easy/Tricky Pockets, Articulation Flipbooks, Speech Spinners, Paper Bag Games, No-Prep Articulation Cards, Dot Art, Spin, Say and Graph, Play-Based Speech Therapy Homework and Language Fortune Tellers.

Last but not least, I just posted a NEW and FREE fluency brochure!  This brochure gives tips, tricks and strategies to help encourage smooth, easy speech. This focuses on conversational fluency to use when working with students who stutter. 

I hope that has given you some new ideas for encouraging speech and language carryover!  If you use any of these with your students I would love to hear about it!
