Do you need some great therapy ideas for December?
I have some wonderful tools for you!
Check out my Therapy Guides! Each Therapy Guide consists of a downloadable video (45 to 60 minutes long) that you can watch NOW from the comfort of your home or office along with a written summary of the information including a materials list and specific instructions for activities with an individual child or small groups young children.

Christmas Therapy Guide
In this 50 minute video I’ll walk you through many, many ideas for using 6 different toys and activities based on holiday themes. I’ll teach you exactly what to say to engage a toddler or young preschooler, target new play and cognitive skills, and teach new language skills. I?ll discuss and demonstrate several activities for each toy providing practical application tips to increase your effectiveness and make sure you know what you’re doing!
You’ll also get a comprehensive 16 page written treatment plan to pair with the activities demonstrated on the video. In the written guide you?ll find a list of suggested goals, materials, instructions, and strategies to make this a productive learning opportunity for both the child and you! Each activity lists 5 to 10 goals for targeting social, cognitive, both receptive and expressive language, and perhaps even speech intelligibility skills in very young children.

12 Tasks for Christmas
In this 53 minute video, you’ll learn 12 simple cognitive activities or tasks to toddlers and young children to help them learn to attend, participate, and finish an entire task through early structured learning opportunities.
Because this is a Christmas series, we’re using the 12 Days of Christmas for inspiration. You’ll see 12 different activities you can easily develop to use with your little clients if you’re a therapist or your own child if you?re a parent.
This material is ideal for committed parents, therapists, and other professionals who work with young children with language and other developmental delays.
In addition to the 53 minute video, you’ll receive a 14 page written summary with a list of easily obtainable materials, set up directions, and detailed instructions for making these activities productive learning opportunities for both the child and you! If you’re a therapist, the activities are written in an easy-to-follow “homework” format, perfect for providing parents for education and suggestions for home practice.
Troubleshooting tips are included in case a child is having difficulty learning or completing the task.
Don’t spend hours searching the internet for ideas that might work for helping toddlers with significant delays learn to complete early learning tasks. The activities and instructions are right here! Lots of mommy bloggers have written cute ideas on their websites or on Pinterest for similar activities, but many times the directions for introducing and carrying out the tasks are not specified. The activities certainly aren?t modified for toddlers and young preschoolers with developmental delays. This video will make these activities applicable for ALL young children.
This is the starting point for therapy for many children with autism. You’ll get better initial participation with these activities than with anything else you may try. You’ll also be establishing great activities for a home therapy program. Typically developing toddlers also love these activities. By introducing these tasks in a structured way, we’re helping ALL children learn important cognitive concepts which will lay the foundation for early academic skills and for learning language. In all of the activities you’ll also be targeting fine motor and motor planning skills, so our colleagues who are OTs love these ideas too.
For more background information about why these tasks are used in therapy, take a look at the Resources and References page at the end of the written therapy guide.

Winter Therapy Guide
Although not Christmas related, the Winter Therapy Guide also provides seasonal ideas for wintertime vocabulary that are relevant for December and January and into February with fun Valentine’s Day activities. This Winter Therapy Guide is filled with ideas for working with small groups of young children. It’s great for:
Speech pathologists and other therapists who see toddlers or young preschoolers in settings like early intervention, daycare, or preschool classrooms.
SLPs who work with toddlers at home with their siblings.
Moms who are committed to providing quality home programming for toddlers and young preschoolers with language delays.
Homeschool moms of typically developing toddlers who want specific ideas and instructions beyond a supply list and a picture of the activity.
I love using seasonal activities to spice up a therapy session! In this Therapy Guide, I’ve put together some great ideas to use in December, January, and February with winter and Valentine’s Day activities.
This Therapy Guides is an instructive 57 minute video along with a pdf with information provided in a handout or homework format that may be copied and shared with parents and caregivers to supplement a child?s therapy program.

I’ve received such positive feedback from my Therapy Guides from both SLPs, other EI therapists and parents. I hope this will serve a great tool for you too as you work with young children with language delays.
