This is part of a continuing series of posts on therapy ideas to support assistants (SLPAs) and paraprofessionals in the schools in their work with students and their supervising SLPs.
Do you use visuals to support learning, generalization, and independence in your students? Maybe we will have a future post on that, but for now look at this great resource [http://www.boardmakershare.com/] for sharing Boardmaker materials and visuals! Boardmakershare is an online community that allows you to find thousands of Boardmaker activities on hundreds of topics. Though you can search for activities and see thumbnails, you will need to create a free account to be able to download anything. Once you have an account, you will have access to the BoardmakerShare community and all the activities, as well as the ability to upload and share your activities!
SLPAs and paraprofessionals should always operate within the scope defined by state and national licensing organizations and should only conduct allowable tasks under the supervision of a speech-language pathologist.
