1. Share PrAACtical AAC's core words of the month calendar with families. I love the way the choose a few words to focus on each month and have different activities to promote generalization. From my days in early intervention, I am a huge fan of giving families a concrete plan to follow and ways to measure their goals (thank you, Hanen trainings :).
2. Send home worksheets, therapy activities, and samples more frequently. As the regular school year comes to a close I find myself sending more examples of what we do to my student's classrooms and -eventually- home. I am hoping that seeing the targets I have for my kiddos will spark ideas for parents as well.
3. Collaborate with private therapists and in-home services. I know I always feel more confident when I have been in contact with a student's therapist and know that we are on the same page -throughout the school year, but particularly- heading into summer.
What do you guys do to keep your kiddos practicing over the summer?
