Articulation Crafts for Speech Therapy (and Language!)

Share on:

Why should you use crafts in speech therapy? Here’s some reasons:

  1. Crafts can be engaging for students
  2. Crafts keep hands busy between trials when working in small groups
  3. They can often be adapted to work for mixed groups
  4. Students can take crafts home and to show parents – and work on carry-over!
  5. They are cute for Speech Room bulletin boards!

Using Open-Ended Crafts for Articulation

You can use a simple, open-ended craft (like these roll-a-cutie crafts or something you find on Pinterest) to work on articulation drills. Just combine with a set of articulation cards/list and have your student practice a certain number of targets before doing the next step of the craft.

This can work out really well when you have a small group because it can keep hands busy while you work with another student!
