Do you ever just wing it?
In this episode of SLP Coffee Talk, I’m sharing a different type of episode. I’m diving into the topic of winging it and giving you permission to throw something together last minute if your lessons don’t go according to plan or even if you just change your mind.
As SLPs, we are busy. We have so much on our plate. There are evaluations to write up, students to gather up, and so much more.
Sometimes things happen. Sometimes you just end up scrambling, and that’s okay! I do it, other SLPs do it. You’re not alone.
It’s easy to want to have the perfect lesson each and every time. But remember, we are human and your students don’t even know when things don’t go according to plan. So there is no reason to stress. Your lessons don’t have to be perfect to be effective.
In This Episode You’ll Discover:
- How no SLPs are perfect
- Why it’s okay to wing it sometimes
- Why your lesson plans don’t need to be perfect
- How to use games to work on speech goals
- Using wordless picture books when you need something in a pinch
- Tips for working on speech skills on imperfect days
No matter what it is that comes up, it’s great to have some of these things in your back pocket that you can use. Your lesson plans don’t have to be perfect. You can work on speech goals in so many ways. This is your permission to wing it and be okay with it.
