Speech/Language Pathologists Find Fun Ways to Get Everyone Interacting and Communicating
The IAHD Speech Department put together a Fall themed Communication Fun Day for individuals who attend the IAHD day programs. The individuals rotated through three different activity tables related to Fall leaves, Halloween and the Thanksgiving harvest. At the Fall station, everyone had the chance to name and select the colored leaf they wanted, to write their name on the leaf and place it on a drawing of a large tree which was hung on the wall. In another activity, individuals were given Halloween masks to decorate, and they were encouraged to name or point to the materials they wanted to use for their masks. At the Thanksgiving center, everyone practiced naming their favorite holiday foods and gluing pictures of the foods onto a Thanksgiving poster. The Communication Department promises more Fun Days in the upcoming year and would like to wish everyone many happy celebrations!
