TossingPigSkin | A Gift of Speech

Tossing Pig Skin: one of my emergency therapy activities!

I am always searching for new ideas to keep my students and clients engaged.  Sometimes I incorporate new games or activities that I have purchased from #TeachersPayTeachers.  While sometimes, I am scrambling to alter my therapy plans while keeping the child engaged.

Emergency Therapy Activities

This past week we had completed our activity much earlier than I had anticipated.  So I reached into my travel therapy bag.  I have found it is always good to have a few “emergency therapy items”.  Right now my emergency items are a ball popping pig and a small plastic football.

Tossing the football!

I pulled out some target cards and placed them around on the table and floor.  Then I had my client toss the ball and try to hit whichever “target card” he wanted.   We worked on some phrases: I toss the ball, I hit the card, I missed the card, and I hit …

Let’s just say it was a big hit.  So whether you are doing group or individual therapy, make sure to have some emergency therapy activities handy!

What are some of your favorite “emergency therapy activities”?
