Thank you to the SLP who inspired us with this great idea. 🐟 Magnets under articulation cards for fun at speech therapy! This little gal and I have worked on lots of things and still have a few more goals.  But she’s so much fun and takes play therapy to another level!

Meeting a preschool child where they’re at is the most amazing way to connect with them. If they’re interested in something, jump in! You can elicit, teach, and observe, and before you know it, you’re engaged in play and conversation. Kids are so much fun!
