53: Inexpensive Swag for Your SLP Therapy Bag with Lauren Donohoe

SLP Ep 53 Inexpensive SLP Therapy

Are you interested in materials that don’t break the bank AND cut down on prep time?

I am excited to be joined by my guest, Lauren Donohoe, to talk all about inexpensive materials and resources for speech therapy.

Lauren Donohoe has been a speech-language pathologist (with her proudly-earned CCCs) since 2015, working in public schools and private practice. She has serviced children aged two to 18 years old and has assessed and treated a variety of speech-language delays/disorders. She received her Master of Arts degree in Speech-Language Pathology and, more recently, her Master of Science degree in Education, specializing in Educational Leadership, from Queens College, CUNY.

Lauren currently moderates the Facebook group called SLPs who Love Target and Bargains! She believes that engaging, effective therapy materials don’t have to break the bank! 


In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • Creative speech activities with inexpensive items
  • Bargain materials for both in-person and virtual sessions
  • How to plan lessons with your items
  • Affordable places to shop for speech therapy
  • Storage tips for your materials
  • What to invest in first for your collection
  • Advice on building your collection

Remember, keeping your students engaged does not have to cost a lot of money. There are many activity ideas for students of all ages that can stem from a bargain material.

I hope this episode with Lauren was helpful for you and encourages you to get creative with bargain materials – no matter where you get them from!
