Finding fun activities to target memory in speech therapy can be a challenge, especially with secondary ed and adults. I often hear, "but I don't care about memorizing 5 random numbers or 10 facts about Peru. How is that going to help me?" Well...........it's not. Speech therapy should be patient specific, relevant, and show the value of your education and experience. And fun. I always try to make it fun!
Here are some of my favorite worksheets, printables, activities, and ideas to banish the "I don't cares" from therapy.
