Welcome to Tween Speech Therapy
Getting your students to use their speech and language skills outside of your room doesn’t need to be overwhelming.
This site was created for us to connect as SLPs
My name is Amanda Dugan and I am blessed to be a speech-language pathologist (MS, CCC-SLP). Tween Speech Therapy is a new site, created in 2017. I created this site and my online store because I feel that there needs to be more focus on materials and strategies tailored specifically to adolescents and pre-adolescents (“tweens”).
I hope you will join me on this adventure. I am learning as I go, and your ideas and feedback are much appreciated! You can connect with me on social media by using the links at the very bottom of this page.
I also send out a newsletter with links to materials I make (many of which are free).
Choose the right home practice program
If you’re like me, your biggest struggle is getting your students to use their speech and language skills outside of your room. Tween Speech Therapy offers a pocket sized speech therapy homework program that is designed for SLPs working with elementary, middle, and high school students. Home practice is a big deal, if you want your students to make lasting progress, so here are some things to consider when starting a homework program.
