167: Tips For Working With Older Speech Students

Tips For Working With Older Speech Students


Wondering how to keep your older speech students motivated? 

At my latest speech retreat, we heard from a panel of SLP Elevate members who shared how they use the resources they got from the membership in their therapy sessions. They shared how it has simplified their planning with older students and made their lives so much easier. 

In this episode of SLP Coffee Talk, I’m sharing what they had to say. You’ll hear from all of these panel members as they dive into how they keep their older speech students engaged in therapy by incorporating their interests and using the simple planning tips and resources. 

You’ll hear from Tracy, Megan, Nicole, Alyssa, Julia, Sue, and Olivia. They’re all SLPs that are out there working with older speech students so they know what works and what doesn't, and I’m so excited to share their tips with you in this episode! 


In This Episode You’ll Discover:

  • Their favorite tips for working with older speech students
  • How you can incorporate students’ interests in speech
  • The topics of interest included in the membership
  • The importance of building rapport with your older speech students
  • Why humor is a great tool to use in during your therapy sessions


I hope you enjoyed this episode and hearing other SLPs in the trenches working with older speech students and how they are building connections and making a difference in their speech room.
