Wondering how you can utilize sensory play in speech to help your students meet their goals? You’re going to love this episode of SLP Coffee Talk! 

I sat down with Dr. Reyna Hernandez and she is going to share her top tips for all things sensory play in speech therapy. 

Sensory play really does help our students make connections and learn faster and stronger. And in a time when students spend more and more time on the screens, it is more important than ever that we engage them in their senses to help them reach their goals. I’m so excited to have Reyna on the show to show us how!

  • How to incorporate more senses into sensory play
