Being Functional is APP-ealing!

apfun sampleIf you’ve been following my blog for a while ,then you know that I place a lot of emphasis on function. This is reflected in the assessments I select and the materials I choose. I want them to be practical, multifaceted, and useful for a wide variety of clients.  My caseload at the hospital and in private practice is pretty varied with diagnoses ranging from über verbal high functioning Asperger’s to non-verbal autistic clients.

It is for the latter clients that I am always in search of more materials, since it is much easier to find/adapt materials for the high functioning verbal students then for the low-functioning non-verbal ones. Especially because you want to make sure that whichever materials you select are not just educational and functional but also fun and easy to interact with.  That is why I was so excited when I got the opportunity to review Teach Speech 365 APP-ealing Functional Communication Packet.

This 25 page packet contains 8 “tablets” which are set up to be used as “low tech” communication boards. The ‘icons’ are laid out like apps to which the client can point to when the clinician asks him/her a question.


The packet contains 8 categories

  • Colors
  • Numbers
  • Animals
  • Occupations
  • Food
  • Transportation
  • Clothing
  • Household

The packet also includes 24 as well as 12 card question sets for the category boards, and contains some blank cards as well, which allows the clinicians to create extra questions for the student.  This packet is so practical and fun that I can’t wait to use it with my non-verbal client over this weekend to see what his impressions are of this packet.You can find these companion packs in  Teach Speech 365 TPT Store for just $4.00.

But that’s not all. Teach Speech 365 is reviewing my At a Glance: Narrative Assessment Charts packet. So we decided to do a Raflecopter giveaway of our respective products on our respective blogs! So she’ll be giving away her packet on her BLOG while I’ll be giving away my Narrative Assessment Charts on mine.  SO DON’T FORGET TO ENTER BOTH GIVEAWAYS TO MAXIMIZE YOUR CHANCES TO WIN BOTH!
