Space Race – Receptive Language

If your caseload and scheduling problems are similar to mine, you’ve noticed that the only time you can happily pull students for treatment is during science and social studies…but wait.
That’s not really true, is it? 

My science and social studies teachers are not always happy to have our shared students consistently miss out on their classes in exchange for speech therapy. I’ve always told my teachers that I love to incorporate curriculum into therapy sessions and that if they’d send me vocab lists and worksheets I’m happy to make those into therapy stimuli whenever possible.  How many teachers have taken me up on this offer? Maybe three in over three years of therapy. But, I could see that my language disordered students were having issues in science class especially.

Have you reviewed a science textbook lately? No? Well, let me tell you what you’ll find. Ready? High level language skills, reading/auditory comprehension, comparing and contrasting, predicting and inferring, multisyllabic words, prefixes and suffixes…
In short – 

It’s all speech, baby!

So, I’ve begun using the textbooks to inspire me.
