It's that time again...back to school! As we get excited for a new school year, the possibilities of therapy ideas and activities are endless and the progress we as SLPs we plan to make could, in our opinion, "move mountains". However, I always found myself so busy by the beginning of the year tasks (orientation, new faculty members, new students, creating a schedule, etc.) that I was running around at the last minute trying to think of that great first speech therapy activity of the year. With that in mind, I made this quick game that can be played with any child regardless of communication goals. So, grab your dice, a few game pieces and your therapy materials (articulation cards, verb cards, language question cards, social skills questions, fluency cards, etc.) and play "School's In!!!"
