Speech therapists often forget that speech skills can be worked using sensory bins. Kids can call out colors and then retrieve them, speech cards can be hidden under rice or sand, or placed on carrot cards(instead of the animals shown) as if you are pulling them out of a garden (we have a tool like this). Enjoy talking and tasting cereal pieces or colored boba!
This can beat the iPAD friends.
Make it an iFIND experience!
OT: You may use cards hidden in the rice/sand to work on copying skills- shapes or letters, or items that are retrievable using tongs that can match an obstacle course exercise. Another unexpected option that adults can get into, is to use pvc pipe pieces that can be hooked together.
