If you use the intensive articulation intervention service delivery model, a speedy speech basket is a must-have! It makes everything grab-and-go!
Here's a look at mine:
Dollar store basket works perfectly in size and price!
Everything fits in, and it's easy to travel with throughout the hallways.
I usually carry my basket and my schedule clipboard when I do sessions. On data collection days, I also carry my speedy speech data notebook.
Here's what's inside my speedy speech basket (left to right, clockwise):
- Pencil Bag: *dice *dry erase markers *chipper chat wand and markers
- Chipper Chat boards for a quick activity
- Sentence Starters: not always carried, but these are perfect for conversation-level practice/data, and oral-reading level practice
- Speedy Speech passes: this makes it quiet in the classrooms! **See note below
- Small nonfiction book with very short paragraph/1-page sections for oral-reading level practice
- small whiteboard
- timer!! (a must)
- Articulation cards. (I use these decks most often, but swap them out for other speech-sound cards so there are different words to practice with)
Speedy Speech Pass Note:
I walk into a classroom and put the Speedy Speech Pass on a student's desk, then walk out. The Pass cues the student to come out to the hallway with me for speech. When the speedy speech session is done, I tell my student who the next student is and the pass is put on the desk of the next student. It works for teachers, too: it's a very quiet, non-disruptive system, and when the pass is on a student's desk the teacher knows that student is in speech and will return shortly.
