Collaboration is Key

You don’t have to do this alone! Once you have used the freebies, to identify some of the communication skills for individual students, share the goals with their other teachers! Build your teaching squad and tackle the skills together! Our students absolutely need opportunities throughout the day to work on their communication skills. Receptive and expressive language skills are imperative throughout the day and it is so important that the SLP is not the only one working on them! By sharing specific goals, special education teachers can easily incorporate them into their lessons too!
