By junior high school, it’s hard to get students excited about articulation treatment. They make more progress when I make things fun and engaging, but it’s hard to find age-appropriate, fun activities for older students. I started making my own materials and modifying games to make them treatment-friendly. I use the Tenzi game: Each student gets 10 of the same-colored dice. They roll the dice to get them all on the same number. Then they add 10 to that number and have to say that many words with their sound (using their strategies!). I log accuracy on a worksheet I created—and the race is on to be the first to fill their Tenzi accuracy log!
About me:
I graduated from California State University, Northridge, and I’m in my 11th year as a full-time SLP at a junior high school. I’m a mom to two busy, fun-loving girls, one of whom had a speech delay, so I’ve been on the other side of the clinical table. I created my Instagram account to share ideas for treatment, advocate for the field of speech-language pathology, and open myself up to learn to be a better clinician.
