I’m sure many of you are familiar with Pinterest, but only use it for your personal interest: outfits, recipes, make up looks, etc. I do as well, but I’ve also found in a useful tool for finding and planning activities for speech therapy!
In my field as a future SLP (speech language pathologist) many of our professors say something along the lines of “Don’t reinvent the wheel.” This is so true! There are many great resources and ideas out there for us to utilize that we can tweak to customize to our client, and it’s easier to take something already existing and adjust it accordingly as opposed to creating something entirely new!
Pinterest can be used for any line of work, not just SLPs–teachers, psychologists, child care workers, and more!
I’ve included the link to my SLP Pinterest page here:
As you can see, it doesn’t have a ton of material on it yet–I’m still compiling! But this just gives you a taste of how Pinterest can be used for work.
Some of the most helpful and/or interesting ones I’ve found and that are part of my speech pathology page are:
- How to Improve Speaking Skills in 7 Simple Steps (beige pin with man in the center of the page seen above)
- When certain sounds start to appear in development
- Wheel of Choices
- Red and Green Choices
- IPA Cheat Sheet
- AAC Prompting Hierarchy

- 25 Speech and Language Strategies
I hope you enjoyed this post and consider utilizing Pinterest in a professional and work related capacity on your happy and healthy adventure! 🙂 ❤
