Finding resources for my older students and home health client has always been a struggle, and is one of the main reasons why I started creating my own. I love using high qualify, real life images that my adolescent and young adults can relate, and I always had such a struggle finding resources that matched that criteria! Here is a roundup of some of my favorite spring-themed resources that I use as I plan my speech therapy sessions with my older students and home health clients.
