Have been trying to come up with new ways to target auditory memory and word retrieval. I would be eager to hear any of your ideas! Some of my student’s inherited goals are maybe not my favorite—targeting how many syllables are in the sentence a student can repeat back to me, for example, doesn’t feel too functional. In any case, “Free Language Stuff” is one source for inspiration on following directions tasks, which I like for having students follow spoken directions of varying complexity. Last week I played the ever-popular old-school car game “I’m going on vacation, and I’m taking apples, bananas…” with one of my students. It wound up being really interesting just to see what strategies he used to recite every item—-checking out the alphabet posted on the wall, tapping out his responses while going down the page, writing down each item, etc—-and what error patterns popped up. If it’s something that might be useful with your students, feel free to download the visual I made below! I’ll admit, I found myself craving some visual cues by the time we got to Z…
