With Thanksgiving around the corner, we wanted to create some fun, themed activities! Many individuals really enjoy targeting their speech and language skills in ways that relate to upcoming events, and it's a nice change of pace for professionals and caregivers.

What makes these products great

  • They don't require a lot of prep to use and don't end up creating a lot of waste
  • Individuals with different skills can access them
  • Individuals who use AAC can use these
  • They don't require a lot of additional supplies/materials
