Best of 2017

How is it the end of the year already?! Anyone else’s mind blown?

Since we are gearing up for 2018, we took a look at SLP Now’s most popular posts from 2017.

Let the countdown begin!

Been a reader of SLP Now for a while? We're so glad you're here, and we want to share which posts came in as our Best of 2017! Click through to find out our top five most popular posts and see if any of them were your favorites, too!

Be sure to read until the end for a special giveaway!

#5 – 7 Tools to Organize Speech Therapy Materials

This was one of my first posts, and I dive some of my favorite tools to organize some of those odds and ends. Perfect for SLPs who might have a few too many materials! 🙂

#4 – Organizing Speech Therapy Materials On the Go

This post reviews my very favorite way to organize my materials. I’ve traveled/moved quite a bit over the past few years, and this tote has become my “go to.” I know that I can use this rolling tote no matter where I end up (and I know I won’t break my neck getting materials from classroom to classroom–or from building to building–in the process!).

Here’s a sneak peek:

(Hint: Scroll to the bottom of this for a chance to win one of these guys!)

#3 – Planning Essentials: Speech Therapy Cart

Well, that’s 3 for 3! I do love some good organization posts!

I wrote this post after I started using a therapy cart to organize my most-used therapy materials. I parked this guy right next to my therapy table and used it to organize writing utensils, books, student folders, and more!

#2 – Speech Therapy Data Collection Solutions

Ah, data! Everyone’s favorite, right?

This was written a few years ago, but it was still really popular this year!

The post includes a massive review of different data collection options. This is the post for you if you’re struggling with data collection but aren’t sure what to change. I walk through everything from traditional paper data to digital data. Lots of free resources are included in this post, too!

#1 – Themed Book Lists

The most visited post of the year… The SLP Now Themed Book Lists!

If you’re looking to get started with literacy-based therapy, this is a great starting point! It includes lists of my favorite books (organized by theme/season).


Because this is our 100th post, we are having a GIVEAWAY…!

Enter below for a chance to win! We’d love it if you followed on Facebook and Instagram. 😀

    I love the book list and the idea to get a rolling therapy cart. As a SLP-CF who travels to multiple schools in my district, I feel like it is so important to stay organized and ready to go. Book themed lessons cut down a lot of planning time too!

    I use the seasonal holiday book list probably monthly! It’s a great way for me to organize for the month. I have been more diligent about checking it a few weeks ahead of when I actually need it so I have enough time to get it from my library. I love finding new books on your list that I have never read!

    I love your therapy cart! A coworker mentioned getting a cart to organize her small workspace more efficiently and so I went searching for one since my space is also on the small side. I stumbled across your blog and became an SLP Now member that same day! That blog is easily my favorite because it turned me on to this amazing resource and website. Thank you, Marisha!
