My Top Three Tools for Interactive Teletherapy Sessions
When Speech-Language Pathologists begin teletherapy, they often agonize over what exactly they're going to do with their students. How do you conduct a therapy session without board games, cards, worksheets, and books without so much as a shared table space? Lean in for this little secret.... you can still do forms of all of those things. You just have to think outside of the box-- I mean inside of the screen! Allow me to introduce the three tools that I use every single day that allow me to conduct engaging and interactive teletherapy sessions.
My friend Belinda at BVG SLP introduced me to Boom Cards™, and it was a true turning point in my teletherapy career.... I'm not joking. Watch this and thank me later when you're you're admittedly obsessed.
MY FAVORITE BOOM CARD DECKS:
"But what about all the PDF resources I've purchased or made over the years?" No problem, you can use those too. Check out this video to witness the magic of annotation!
MY FAVORITE PDFs TO USE WITH ANNOTATION:
Teletherapy is like a whole new world. A new fantastic point of view.... of digital materials. Pardon the #aladdinreference, but do you know how sometimes when you download a form from the internet to fill out, it already has those magic little text boxes for you to type into? That, my friend, is an example of an interactive PDF. But interactive PDFs for speech therapy are much less lame. See for yourself!
