Here are some of my favorite tools that I love to use to assemble therapy materials. It’s easy to spend a lot of money on these tools, and I hope to share some tools that might save you some time (and money)!

I’m obsessed with my printer! It prints beautifully and has all the functions I need (and more). I chose an HP printer, because HP Instant Ink is amazing. I save so much money on ink now. When you buy a new printer, they often include three free months of ink. You can also get an additional free month if you sign up using this link!
This is a must have! I love my Scotch laminators!
I personally don’t see a big difference in the different laminating sheets, so I stick with these cheaper ones. I’ll buy the Scotch brand when they’re on sale. 🙂
A poor SLP’s velcro…! I love this stuff. I used it in a bind when I ran out of velcro, and now I use it all the time! (I usually buy this in the store, though. It’s a little pricier on Amazon!)
I use Tac most of the time, but I sometimes still use Velcro. This brand seems to be the best deal. It’s not my favorite because the velcro is pretty thick, but the other options are a little too pricey for me.
This is such a time saver! It’s really lightweight and easy to move around. I’ve had mine for years, and it’s still going strong (even after multiple moves and A LOT of cutting).
These are great for quickly putting materials together (interactive books, decks of card, visuals).
I was tired of the hole punchers at school, and I splurged on a “fancy” hole puncher. This one has been going strong for a few years!
These are great for visuals, reinforcers, and my articulation stickers. Makes for easy add-ons to therapy materials, and kids love them!
These circle punches are another splurge but a great time saver. I use them for my stickers, gift tags, and craft templates!
This is a definite splurge, but I bought it at the beginning of the year. I decided to treat my friends to planners, and it was cheaper to buy this (versus paying to have them bound). I love this one because it’s easy to open the spine and add/remove pages!
