I recently went to a workshop to get some tips and ideas to address stuttering. As SLPs (especially those working in the schools), it can be overwhelming to address this area sometimes. I have a new student on my caseload that has a stutter and I was unsure of where to begin. This workshop was exactly what I needed! I definitely recommend seeking workshops in your area!
After being refreshed on the strategies, I knew I had to make an activity pack for you!
This pack is filled with activities, checklists, and worksheets that help address the various areas of fluency treatment.
My Conversation BINGO was such a hit that I decided to make a fluency bingo that would elicit conversations about emotions and feelings behind stuttering and communication in general. I tried to hit as many as possible! It is extremely important to tap into the emotional piece when working on fluency. Many topics can be difficult to discuss or even bring up. This activity can do it for you! This activity comes with 5 BINGO boards and calling cards. The calling cards match the pieces on the BINGO cards. Once question is answered or statement is completed, students can place a BINGO chip on the spot.
This can be completed by a teacher to help them consider all the pieces of stuttering. This can be used as a pre-referral tool or to assess progress.
This worksheet addresses a student's feelings about own stuttering.
It is important for students that have a stutter to recognize that their stuttering is only one part of them. It is important to boost self-esteem and discuss things they are good at.
Fluency Practice Game:
Now it is time to practice speech strategies! I created a fun board game and question cards to elicit sentences to practice with!
I took the most common strategies (in my opinion) and created a bookmark for students. This way they have their strategies on them at all times!
