That's Absurd! - FREEBIE ALERT

Hello Speechies!

Do you ever work on absurdities? My caseload this year is primarily students with ASD and related disorders and we are constantly working on describing pictures. One thing my students struggle with is stating "What is wrong?" in a picture. I found some REALLY cute clip art from Krista Walden Creative Clips on Teachers Pay Teachers and made a quick FREEBIE to use this week with my students. I wanted to share it with you in case you are working on the same skill! 
With this download, you will receive 18 colorful task cards with picture scenes and sentences embedded with an absurdity. Ask your students open ended questions instead of yes/no questions to avoid a getting a simple response. I typically ask a what or why question first. Then, once the student responds with an answer, I probe for more questions. Additional questions to ask:
Why is this silly?
What would you typically see at/in the _____?
Where would you find a _____?
These questions further your students comprehension of the picture and the scenario. All the while, you can target syntax, morphology, pragmatics, and semantics. 
I hope you enjoy this FREEBIE!

5 Reasons Smarty Symbols is a Must Have for School SLPs

As school based SLPs, we know that our students highly benefit from visual aids. That increases ten fold if you work with individuals with autism spectrum disorder or English language learners. Subscriptions to well-known image libraries can be pricey and unreachable. Also, if you enjoy making products on Teachers Pay Teachers, you are prohibited by copyright of selling these items. That is why I LOVE Smarty Symbols.

1) Smarty Symbols is a wonderful tool that I use every single day. I can’t say that for most of my therapy tools. You have access to over 20000 images and more are being added daily. These images are clear, detailed, and print off wonderfully.
2) In addition to their vast library of images, I must add that their website is beyond easy to navigate. Just search the word and a variety of images appear. You won't ever spend too much time searching for just the right image.
3) You can search and create your own pages off of their templates that are already created. Need a 1st grade MLU activity? Search it easily by clicking on 1st grade, speech therapy. It is so simple and quick…completely necessary with our busy schedules.
4) With the personal subscription, it is perfect for developing low tech AAC for students that need to start with PECS or a core board. I can't tell you how many times I have made a PECS book, a core board, or visuals for paraprofessionals to put on a lanyard.
5) With the commercial license, you can create your own therapy materials and then turn around and sell them on TpT! A no-brainer if you’re already creating or making your own materials.

Check out these products that I have made with Smarty Symbols images…and these are just a few!
