SLP Sherry Artemenko shares an example of bucking the written treatment plan and letting the child direct the activity—a way to unleash the imagination and promote more learning:
“I arrived at Annika’s house and she had just gotten home from a visit to the toy store with grandma. Annika loves horses and grandma had bought a little barn set with two play horses…Annika started to play with the horses but that wasn’t enough. She suggested we make a zip line from the barn to the cardboard box that had housed her toy! We wove together the wire and made an attachment for the horses and the fun began. We were working on /r/, so sliding a “horse” from the ‘barn’ for ‘more’ ‘rides’ fit right into my plans to work on /or/ and /ar/ words! Sometimes it’s nice to get a break from planning therapy and have the child lead the way.”
