We are so excited we were able to share with our exclusive newsletter subscribers our Best of’s… Therapy Tools for the year of 2020 (may it have been one of the few positive takeaways). It is never too late to subscribe in our pop-up, and be the first to check out these posts. In the article below, we also included some other fun tools we had to share this year… click on the link to be directed to the post on our site.

April 2020: Wordless videos - one of our consistent top hits of the year!

June 2020: Webs - post includes soooo many ways to use
July 2020: Whiteboards - don’t forget this can be virtual too!
August 2020: Virtual tours - who needs to stress about staying in groups and bathroom buddies when these are available?
September 2020: Music - one of our favorites and appropriate for all ages!
October 2020: The expectant pause - pausing is POWERFUL
November 2020: Goal writing formula - you’ll never forget the the Do, Condition, Criteria (+ Consistency) after this post
Last, but certainly not least, is our Best of… Therapy Tools for December 2020: Our Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT) Store!
As many caregivers and educators are already aware, TpT is a phenomenal resource containing a plethora of academic, therapeutic, and at home educational materials. So, that is why we used them as our digital store to release all of our FREE materials and content throughout the year of 2020 (seriously… all our materials are free of charge). I’m sure we are not alone there either! As our world became more remote and virtual learning became a “norm,” emergency downloads of digital resources have also become pretty standard. Well, we hope we were there to help during those moments and are pleased to bring you more in the upcoming 2021 year.
What to check out:
