1. Learn with Adrienne has some wonderful videos that are fun and functional to help toddlers increase their language skills. All of these activities can easily be incorporated in to home environment and across multiple settings.
2. Accessible Chef is one of my favorites because you can target language skills through cooking. They have a list of different recipes with all of the steps and visual supports to support each recipe. There is also a section where you can use their recipe creator tool if you have a recipe that is not listed on their website. They have a bank of pictures, so it is convenient if you are looking for specific ingredients to create your own recipe.
As a student it is difficult to stock up on therapy activities that require purchasing, because typically you are on a budget. When I came across the website BudgetSLP I immediately thought this would be a great site to share. Inexpensive resources can be just as beneficial as expensive resources especially when you are on a budget.
Diana stated, “I was always looking for low-cost therapy materials: I made my own games, articulation cards and most other therapy materials. This involved actual drawing, coloring, cutting (with scissors) and pasting (with glue) to create these materials.” I read Diana’s about me section and it reminded me of when I first started in the field and I am sure you all may be able to relate.
Below are some of the categories that Diana has on her blog:
Therapy Thoughts and Essentials
Language and Thematic
Articulation, Phonology, and Phonemic Awareness
Ipads and Apps
Six Weeks of Summer Activities
Resources to Pass to Parents
Blogs I Follow
Some of my favorite posts on this website are:

Special Thanks to Diana to creating a great resource that provides inexpensive activities.
