Pediatric speech-language pathologists may work with children and adolescents individually or in group sessions. It is helpful to have a quick theme therapy planning guide to provide next steps for therapy sessions. The forms included should be used to plan monthly themes for the year. This is meant to be a template to assist in thinking of engaging topics of interest for children on your speech language therapy caseload. This will help improve your efficiency as a pediatric speech-language pathologist by having ideas of themes for each month to maintain the interest of children and adolescents.
You may decide that you want to have more than one theme for the month. The forms included are a guide as speech-language pathologists often make changes in sessions based on children’s interest and performance in sessions. Speech-language therapy is dynamic so it is perfectly okay to alter plans as needed in the best interest of the children or adolescents that you are providing speech-language services for.
I hope this quick resource helps you plan effective themed speech-language therapy sessions! Enjoy building communication, language, and literacy skills. I have successfully used these forms in my speech-language therapy practice. There are different versions. Select the one that works best for you!
