Speech Bubble Resources- Below are a range of resources recommended by Liz Shoreman our school’s Speech and Language Therapist for families to use at home.
The Speech Bubble team have been working hard to produce a catalogue of easy to follow therapy videos, split into 3 series. They require no special equipment (just a scarf/rag, a pot or pan to bang on, and pencil and paper). Each series of videos has a 2 minute 'how to' video for Parents, and then the child can watch and join in the therapy sessions with an adult. They are all streamed through Youtube, and are on the Speech Bubble website, under resources.
