Video Self-monitoring Using iPad Pro
Students will be given increased opportunities for dramatic play. Dramatic play stations will include a grocery store, lemonade stand, and diner with toys relating to each area purchased from the company Melissa and Doug. During the students’ speech and language therapy sessions, they will be given the opportunity to play in a desired center while being guided by a speech language pathologist. Students will role play by taking turns as the person working and/or the customer. The speech language pathologist would use the equipment to target various social or language goals including: labeling objects, following directions, increasing mean length of utterance, verbally requesting desired objects, engaging in conversation or activity with an adult or peer, remaining on topic, turn taking, categorizing, pronoun+verb agreement, and understanding basic temporal and spatial concepts. If 90% of students receiving speech and language therapy show growth towards their social and/or language goals through increased pretend play opportunities, the study will be judged as a success.
