Putting Therapy Into Practice

Have your child talk about three teachers from the year. Divide a piece of paper into three sections and have your child write or draw one of their favorite memories per section.  Then, have your child talk about what they liked best about this memory: where they were, what they did, and who was there.

Monthly Activity

Thank You Card(s)

Things you need:

  • paper
  • crayons/markers/pencils
  • stickers
  • stamps
Have your child write and/or draw a card for someone who works at their school. Discuss with your child why he is writing this card to the teacher. For example: because Mr. Jon plays basketball with me, because Ms. Sue teaches me how to play cool instruments. Then, if your child is writing, have him compose a thank you card for the teacher. If your child is not yet writing, have them draw a picture and dictate their reasons.  Last, decorate the card!

Deena’s Recommended Game

The Good Dinosaur Matching Game (or any character memory game) is an awesome game to play with your preschool-aged child. I recommend picking 10 pairs instead of using all of the cards. This game targets turn-taking, motor-speech control, attention to task, and pronoun use. Below are some suggestions:


  • Turn-taking: the parent/caregiver can ask “who goes now” to which the child responds: “I do”, “you do”, “mommy, you go”. The caregiver can also ask “who’s turn is it?” to which the child responds: “it’s my turn”, “it’s your turn”
  • Pronoun usage: the caregiver should carefully plan their responses to make sure that their response includes a pronoun such as “me”, “I do” instead of “it’s Mommy’s turn”, “it’s Brody’s turn”.
  • Attention to Task: Reinforce your child for waiting their turn and for remaining with you while playing the activity.
  • Motor-Speech Control: Speak with your PROMPT© trained clinician to determine which words in the following lexicon are appropriate for your child at this time: me, you, I do, you do, I go, you go, match, same, it does, it does not.
