162: Tips for Tackling Mixed Groups

Tips for Tackling Mixed Groups


Do you feel confident going into your mixed groups? 

In this episode of SLP Coffee Talk, I’m sharing a clip from a free training I did all about mixed groups and tackling them with confidence. I shared my top tips and strategies for planning them and feeling ready to take them on. 

I don’t want any of you stressing out over mixed groups any more! The trick is to stop overthinking it. You can work on multiple goals with multiple different students at once. 

These are some activities, tips, and tricks for your mixed groups that will take the stress out of planning and prepping so that you can help each student in your group focus on what they need. 


In This Episode You’ll Discover:

  • Why you shouldn’t overthink your mixed groups
  • Tips for implementing a good behavior management system in these groups
  • How to find commonalities in the objectives for each student in the group
  • Simple ideas for activities you can use tomorrow in your mixed group sessions
  • How to use one activity with as many groups as possible


I know that mixed groups are the most challenging, but I hope you found these tips helpful! Remember, try not to overthink it. These simple tips will help you plan and execute your lessons for mixed groups with ease!
