Homework Helpers are HERE!

I see most of my clients between 30 and 60 minutes each week. The rest of the more than 10,000 minutes a week, they are NOT with me! They are with their families and doing other activities! THIS is why I emphasize homework so much with my kiddos.

I suggest that all my clients work between 5-20 minutes each day on their speech targets or goals. I know that can be a mighty tall order for some, so in addition to the homework pages, words, etc. that I give out following sessions, I wanted to create some helpers to make homework time easier, more fun, and more motivating!

Here is a description of the Progress Tracker packet that I put together:

Page 1:

  • You and your child can use a mountain coloring page to keep track of progress on his or her goals. Every time they meet a goal on their way to conquering their target sound in conversation, color that chunk in and add mountainous decorations! This visual reminder will be so motivating!

Page 2:

  • Use the 100 block pyramid during at-home practice sessions. Encourage your child to try and get 100 productions of their goal/target each time they practice. If your child says the same word five times, that counts as five blocks! Color a number whether the production is correct or incorrect.

Carryover will be most successful (and faster!) when caregivers work at home on a child’s goals with them, even a little at a time. I hope these fun worksheets help make homework time a blast!

Exciting Things to Come!

My number one goal with Bloom Speech & Language Services is to serve the community. Because of my passion to empower parents, serve marginalized adults, and help children, I have been putting together some awesome upcoming offerings! I will soon be setting up a mailing list to keep you updated so you don’t miss out!

  1. I will be offering a PDF packet for homework help and progress tracking. There will be a free version and an expanded version offered for a low cost.
  2. I am SO excited to announce that over the summer I will be completing an Orton-Gillingham based training to become an Indiana Department of Education certified reading specialist! I will be able to offer reading and dyslexia tutoring! I also plan on offering trainings to parents to help them work on reading at home.
  3. I have started offering voice feminization services via teletherapy for transgender individuals.

If you are interested in setting up a consultation or evaluation, please let me know. I am here for you and asking questions is free!
