89 page PDF document with thanksgiving-themed speech activities
The Thanksgiving Speech and Language Bundle includes 85+ pages of functional Thanksgiving-themed speech therapy activities designed to save you time! Useful for both children and adults, this resource is just in time to engage your patients with the upcoming holiday.
This packet was created to promote recovery of cognitive-linguistic deficits for individuals returning home or to an assisted/independent living facility. Use of functional real-world tasks in therapy helps generalize skills learned to everyday situations. Functional therapy is based on a patient-centered approach and it is important to consider your clients’ day-to-day responsibilities. This packet includes a case history form, functional activities, practice ideas, and compensatory strategies. To improve functionality and promote independence, modify materials based on individual needs and use real materials/scenarios when possible.
Sections include: goal writing examples, home practice and ADL activities, 60 + high-quality colored images, and an additional 20 ideas for real-world practice.
What is Phonological Components Analysis?
Developed and modeled after Semantic Feature Analysis (SFA), Phonological Components Analysis (PCA) is an evidence-based technique that aims to improve awareness of phonological properties of words and support word retrieval in PWA. First introduced by Leonard et al. (2008), PCA showed positive outcomes in 7 out of the 10 individuals studied and some generalization for untrained words. Van Hees et al. (2013) further investigated PCA by comparing it to SFA. In this study, 7 out of 8 people showed improvements for treated words with PCA and only 4 people showed improvements with SFA (Van Hees et al., 2013). Van Hees et al., 2013 suggests that individuals with semantic difficulties will likely have more success with PCA and it is expected that individuals with phonological deficits will show improvements with both treatment techniques.

A speech-language pathology clinical fellowship (CF) serves as a transitional professional experience following graduate school. Successful completion is required by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) to obtain a Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) in Speech-Language Pathology. In addition to ASHA requirements, most states also require a clinical fellowship to obtain state licensure. Without the underlying knowledge and resources, the transition into a medical setting can be difficult.
This bundle was created as an educational guide to support new and experienced clinicians, as well as, offer functional intervention tools. This resource includes educational information on basic procedures and documentation, billing and coding, no-prep handouts and inservice templates, a comprehensive goal bank, functional therapy ideas, and much more. The included treatment activities simulate real-life skills and can be used to target functional relevant goals.
