LESSON PLANS for the Speech-Language Pathologist
Below you will find a graded book list. Keep in mind that when
working with children who exhibit learning disabilities or
language delays you will have to assess the level of your
students and choose the appropriate books. This book list will
help you find books that are as close to grade level as possible
based on your student’s abilities.
TIP: For grades four and up, you may want to concentrate on
2-3 books for the entire year, because the books tend to get
longer. It’s not easy to establish continuity when seeing
speech therapy students in groups. Therefore, pick 2-3 books a
year and try to teach various vocabulary and language
concepts in the context of each book.
e.g. teaching synonyms, sequencing a chapter, sequencing the
whole story, describing characters, summarizing a chapter,
paraphrasing a paragraph etc.
