This is part of a continuing series of posts on therapy ideas to support assistants (SLPAs) and paraprofessionals in the schools in their work with students and their supervising SLPs.

I love all the collections of images that have been popping up on Pinterest, but I’ve never really known what to do with them. Similarly, there are flashcard-type apps full of great images, but how can we use them for broader purposes? Here are 2 great posts – one from Jenna Rayburn on using pinterest image collections with Tapikeo on the iPad, and another from Tatyana Elleseff on adapting flashcard apps to address social skills.

SLPAs and paraprofessionals should always operate within the scope defined by state and national licensing organizations and should only conduct allowable tasks under the supervision of a speech-language pathologist.
