My Monthly Themes

I’ve been coming up with monthly themes that I can recycle each year so I can use my time and energy elsewhere. Each month I add the theme to my practice through a virtual therapy room (which has themed webcams, videos, books, and websites), prizes, sensory bins, apps, and activities.

Themed Virtual Treatment Rooms

I’ve made re-usable monthly themes that will help me maximize my time and energy and I’ve applied these themes to my virtual treatment room.

FREE Create-A-Story Slideshow

I made this FREE “Create-A-Story” slideshow that you can download and use. I share it in “edit” mode (instead of “present” mode) and have the kids choose the setting from the left of the 1st slide and the characters from the right of the 1st slide.
