5 Ways to Use Dry Erase Dice!

The Dollar Tree has these AMAZING dry erase dice for...you guessed it...A DOLLAR! The possibilities of these are truly endless. I want to share some ideas with you on how I use them in therapy.

1) Articulation Dice - Using two dice, write target sounds/words on each side of the first die and on the second die, write numbers 1 through 6. Have your students roll both dice. Then, they can produce the target sound for number rolled on the other die.

2) Answering Questions Dice- Using a fine point dry erase marker, write WH questions on each side of the die. These can be used for ice-breakers, answering questions about a story, or general WH questions. 

3) Verb Dice - Write regular or irregular verbs on the dice. Roll the die and have your student produce the past tense form of the verb and use it in a sentence.

4) Vocabulary Dice - Target homophones, antonyms, synonyms, categories, etc. Write a grade level vocabulary word on each side of the die. Roll the die and ask your student to produce the target vocabulary concept.

5) Sentence Building Dice- Using two dice, write a subject (noun, pronoun, etc.) on each side of the first die and on the second die, write an action verb. Have your students roll both dice. Then, they can form a grammatically correct sentence with dice. 

What are some creative ways you can use or have used these dice in therapy? I'd love to hear!

Informal Assessment for Individuals with Autism

I don't know about you, but giving standardized tests to some of my kiddos isn't the end all - be all measure. And it definitely doesn't paint a true picture of all the abilities and strengths of the child. When initially meeting a family, I always like to give a case history/interview form as well as a functional communication checklist to the parents. Typically, I grab the CELF pragmatic profile with some random case history form that I found on google. I was never satisfied with the information I had gathered when I sat down to write the report and IEP.

For those very reasons, I tried to create an assessment that would give me enough information to feel comfortable about a students true receptive and expressive language ability. This is my newest product on TpT: Informal Assessment for Individuals with Autism: Lower level. 

This is the expressive language portion with the stimulus book and scoring assessment. In both the receptive and expressive stimuli books, I used real pictures and limited language. 

These are the checklists included in the resource. You can score each task with a 0, .5, and 1. This gives you more information when writing goals. Check it out on my TpT Store: Speech Me Maybe and let me know what you think! 
P.S. Higher level version is coming soon!!! :)
