Back to school activities for speech therapy

If you are looking for some ideas for back to school speech therapy, make sure to keep reading!

The first few weeks back to school can be exhausting and overwhelming (for you and your students!). If you’re anything like me, I like to keep things very simple the first few weeks so that I can really focus on building relationships with my students (and not spending too much time planning and prepping).

I’m going to list some no-prep speech therapy activities and some play based speech therapy ideas that you can use all of September!

Back to school Books for Preschool Speech Therapy

These are all great books for preschool to introduce them to school. Most of our little friends have never experienced school (i.e lining up, washing hands, snack time, transitions, etc.). The more we can expose kids to what is excepted at school, the better! Do a quick Google Search to find out how you can get your hands on a copy in your area!
