Today I’m linking up with Speech Room News to talk about one of my favorite therapy topics ever:
You know them and probably have plenty on your caseload. The little “Jimmys” that are so transparent because they blurt out everything that pops into their adorable heads, that you never even have to guess what they’re thinking. The adolescent “Maxs” that are not afraid to get within one inch of your face because they have no spacial awareness. And how could we forget the little “Samanthas” who doesn’t understand why it’s not okay to pick your nose and eat it in class?
I love these kids. They are perhaps my favorite on my caseload and I look forward to our social groups every week. This post is going to focus on three products I love that are geared toward the older kiddos on your caseload.
1. 9th Planet Autism Social Skills Videos.These videos follow the interplanetary explorer Tad Shy, from the 9th planet, as he became stranded on the 3rd planet. In order to survive, he must learn to assimilate with the native Typicals. My middle and high school boys looooove these videos! It reminds them of Star Wars so they are good to go!
I own both the elementary and adolescent version because they are just soooo good! I love that they have clear pictures on the front and questions on the back-makes planning social group simple! Go to the link above and download a few of the sample pages to see what I mean!
My high school social groups have been extremely easy to plan this year thanks to this product I created. With real-life pictures and topics for the entire year, your students will gain valuable skills, even in the areas of Facebook and job-applying!
Hopefully, you were able to get some fresh ideas for those older students on your caseload. Check out Speech Room News for more!

I haven't changed my at-home therapy office much in the past two years but I did build in some better organization this year and now I think it's ready for the 2017 school year! The Goal Bulletin Board is listed in my shop and the frames contain inspirational teaching quotes and room for student work. If you haven't checked out the before pics, I'd love for you come on over! It was quite a work in progress! speechpeeps.com/2015/08/allisonspeechroom.html... See MoreSee Less
