I see multiple students for speech therapy in the autism room. Some of them have many goals to grow their speech production, work on apraxia, or on articulation errors as part of their IEPs. In this particular classroom, they also have multiple 1:1 stations. I like to go there because many students don’t like discontinuity in their routine, so many times it works out best for the student. Also, I’m often doing 1:1 therapy with this group of students.
When I go into the classroom, I go to my student’s desk and sit across from him. He has all his usual reinforcers needed to maintain engagement. He loves me to visit because he knows he’s going to get to use technology. In particular, he spends a lot of time on YouTube, so I always have his favorite channels cued up in the Amplio Learning Platform before starting.
