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:
-Tuesday's Treasure Box: Three Links to Freebies
-Speech Homework: 25 Alternatives to Speech Folders
-Six Weeks of Interactive Speech and Language Practice Activities (Apps Included!)
-Miami Dade: Volumes of Visual Supports
Special Thanks to Diana to creating a great resource that provides inexpensive activities.
