What is a read aloud?
How do I support speech goals during a read aloud?
I have an absolute obsession with book companions. I bet I use them 3-6 times per day with a huge chunk of my caseload.
However, as an SLP, I have found myself sitting in IEP meetings, discussing progress the student has made, and getting questions from a parent such as, "Well what do you mean he does better with visuals? What kind of visuals? How can I support him at home then?"
It got me thinking... we need to start supporting not just the student, but our parents as well!
I've created a in-depth handout that is perfect for SLPs, but is also a great resource to share with parents to support these skills at home. It also includes open ended pages full of comprehension questions and extension activities for multiple age groups!
