Technology Questions and Support – Speech Therapy Games Teletherapy
Do you get overwhelmed or confused about how to use technology to help support your teletherapy sessions?
If so, I have answered some of the most common questions I get about using technology within your teletherapy sessions.
If you need help with how to screen share from Zoom or Google Meet then be sure to watch the short youtube video below on how to use Kami as an interactive screen sharing.
Remote Access or Mouse Control
Giving your student remote access or mouse control can be a little different depending on what teletherapy platform you’re using.
Google Meets Giving Remote Control:
My favorite websites to use for annotation are Kami and Adobe.
When you use a free website, such as Kami to provide your therapy services it doesn’t matter which video chat service you use because it is similar to google docs in that two people can work on the same document or in this case lesson plans at the same time.
You simply just need to give the student access to the same lesson or document.
Watch this quick youtube video showing you exactly how to do that.
*You don’t have to pay for anything you can simply use a free account.
Make any PDF interactive using these ideas for how to use Adobe Reader (free) to make a static PDF interactive.
Dice Roller – If you’re in need of a virtual dice be sure to check out this dice roller that lets you choose how many dice you want to roll and then does a random roll for you.
Wheel of Names Spinner – Simply type your student’s name in the box on the right-hand and then use the spinner to pick a person in the group. Or you can use the spinner by putting numbers in the spaces and then when a child spins that is the number of spaces they can move.
If you’re a classroom teacher or Speech Pathologist in need of data tracking forms while working on your student’s goals for speech therapy then be sure to check out my IEP goal data tracking for progress monitoring forms.
Or if you simply want a list of data sheets to choose from then be sure to check out my list of 35 free speech therapy data sheets roundup.
Digital Data Collection – Google Form
Plus I have a complete data tracking google form that you can use digitally! Watch the video below to learn how!
When I was still working in the schools as a school-based SLP I loved using google classroom to help keep my virtual speech therapy session organized.
And the best part?
I could come back the following year and have complete lesson plans put together and organized, which was super helpful.
Watch this quick video on how to add an interactive PDF to your Google Classroom.
