Must-Haves


To store your materials online, so you can access them on any computer, try Dropbox!  It's free!

My favorite therapy game is Pop-Up Pirate.  It has 24 swords, which means up to 24 opportunities for data collection... or more if you require the child to produce his sound 5 times for each sword (or read 5 sight words, answer 5 comprehension questions, recall 5 details, etc.).  It's good for groups since there are 4 different sword colors.


Flippin' Frogs also allows for a LOT of data collection!  There are 24 frogs in 4 colors so it can also be used for groups.  After the child earns all of the frogs, we turn on the rotating tree and see how many of them stay on the tree when it flips up.

Another fun game that allows for several trials per turn is Honey Bee Tree.


An obvious must-have is a good laminator.  I like my Scotch Laminator more than the professional one at my clinic!  I buy 5mm laminating pouches rather than 3mm as they are thicker and more durable.


Real-life Angry Birds.  All of my kids love Angry Birds and with this real-life version, I make them earn each building block.  When we have built a tower (or more importantly when I have collected enough data) we use the slingshot to knock down the tower and pigs!


Everyone needs some Play-Doh, markerscrayons, twistable colored pencils (no more sharpening!), and bubbles!

I also love these 3/4" binding rings for keeping my printed flash cards together as a set!

  5. Ms. Lane - I hope you get credit through Amazon if we purchase an item - I purchased the laminator and film and love it so much - now I can do what I need to do when I have the time to do it since I have it setup in my therapy room. NOW if I could just find a printer LOL (seems our school printer is always in the hospital) Happy Easter Sandi NC PS I am a FB friend too.

  10. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I searched the Internet tirelessly looking for materials for my developmentally delayed grandson...and was unable to find the materials I needed. I am a high school educator, but I had no idea where to start to help my grandson. THEN, I found your site! How wonderful you are to provide these materials for others to use. I love them...and his PreK teacher loves them, too. I hope my small donations helps you, OR at least keeps you in decaf for a week. God bless you for being so generous.
