I am excited to be linking up again with The Frenzied SLPs group today to bring you a series of posts on using water activities in therapy! I think you will really enjoy the wide range of ideas we have for you 🙂
I just recently tried out a new activity with one of my little guys with Autism who is working on requesting. He really likes art activities, so we used some coffee filters and dot markers to stamp all around the filter. The color bleeds through, so be sure to have something underneath the filter, like a tray of sorts! I had him request different color dot markers using a color strip from Felice’s (The Dabbling Speechie) AAC Starter Pack (which I use all. the. time. Worth every penny!). I love seeing him being able to verbalize things like “I want blue!” and “Green marker!” with some visual supports in front of him 🙂
The colors should all bleed together when wet. Ours didn’t come out *quite* how I anticipated (we didn’t fill up enough of the filter with color, I think), but 3 year olds don’t really care about the end result- just the process!
