and community support to take the bulk of lesson prep off your plate.
Do you feel like you are the last one to leave the parking lot?
Do you feel like you are drowning in a sea of SLP paperwork and planning?
Or just lost at sea when it comes to knowing where to start to get your older kids smiling and talking?
You’re absolutely NOT alone.
If you’ve found yourself eating lunch at your desk day after day to fit in speech prep as you shovel food into your mouth, well… you’re not alone, friend.
You can get hours of your life back, feel confident in your lessons, AND engage your students more than ever.
Life can be more fun in and out of the therapy room
You don’t have to choose between helping your students thrive and having a life outside of work.
Replace the hours spent scrolling TPT with a much-deserved coffee date with a friend.
You can have a work-life balance others aspire to!
And you can have a therapy room filled with the sounds of kids talking and laughing. Yup, even those sometimes harder to crack older kids LOVE speech when you make it fun!
You know that flutter in your heart when a kid talks excitedly about their weekend, after weeks of one-word answers. You can feel that almost every day!
Get energized hearing the patter of kids rushing to go to their favorite class: Speech!
If this isn’t currently your experience... but you want it to be, I can help you make that happen.
And nope: The answer is NOT buying dozens of resources you’ll never use. (SLPs are notorious paper hoarders… so I see you!)
Hey there, I'm Hallie.
As a school-based SLP working full time in the schools, I know all too well the overwhelm that can come from balancing a 60-kid caseload and family.
When I first started working with older students over a decade ago, I had NO idea what I was doing.
But I could tell that every time babyish looking materials came out, the kids shut down. I couldn't find any resources that were truly for older kids. Resources that were fun and could actually encourage them to participate.
I decided to create my own materials to get my students excited to participate and learn. And "Speech Time Fun" and my fun and easy method was born!
Making a difference for SLPs through the use of my materials is something I LOVE just as much as helping my own students. I help SLPs -just like YOU- deliver fun lessons with ease and confidence which allows them to be more present for their students (and their families).
Member Melissa said "I've planned to use all the materials with my 5th+ kids. It's been such a time saver!"
I love creating time saving materials, but the last thing I want is for you to end up with 500 worksheets without an effective PLAN of what to use and why.
Instead, I want to give you exactly what you need for your students and show you how to use it for a variety of goals and levels. Let's keep things simple!
I want to save you hours AND help you grow as an SLP by, yes, delivering awesome high interest themed materials I know your students (and you) will love. You cannot get these resources on TpT! They are exclusive for SLP Elevate!
I want to show you how to use those resources over and over again so the majority of your lessons with older kids that month are planned!
The fastest way to get your time back and feel confident in lessons for OLDER speech students?
Start raising your SLP confidence and see your older students LOVE coming to your speech room!
(and remember why you love being an SLP!)
Of course, you’ll get ready-to-use resources (hello hours back), but you’ll get so much more!
Here’s what you can expect inside SLP Elevate Membership…

What does the research say?
SLP Elevate resources incorporate graphic organizers to help students focus on what is important and understand what is expected of them for responses.
Students with ASD and LLDs often struggle to understand relationships among critical concepts. They require explicit instruction in how content is related to background knowledge so they can make inferences. (Ward-Lonergan & Duthie, 2016)
Can be used to identify salient details. Can be used to minimize extraneous information that frequently distracts students from the most important content
(DiCecco & Gleason, 2002)
We have a variety of high-interest themes to select from that correlate with popular concepts and topics for grades 4-12. SLPs can select from the theme of the month of from previous themes included inside SLP Elevate.
Students read more, understand more, and are more likely to continue reading when they have the opportunity to choose what they read” (Allington and Gabriel, 2012).
Various comprehension goals can be addressed through SLP Elevate. Members learn how to explicitly teach concepts so that students can grasp it and build confidence.
Explicit vocabulary instruction and comprehension strategy instruction are two effective approaches for improving the reading comprehension of older struggling readers (Elleman, Lindo, Morphy, & Compton, 2009; Kamil et al., 2008). Direct instruction in word meaning that goes beyond definition teaching to include deep processing activities including generating examples and nonexamples and creating semantic maps are effective for increasing the vocabulary knowledge of older struggling readers (Bryant, Goodwin, Bryant, & Higgins, 2003). When it comes to comprehension strategy instruction, three particular areas that show consistent positive effects for older struggling readers are learning strategies for identifying the main idea, summarizing the text, and self-regulating or monitoring learning strategies while reading (Wanzek, Wexler, Vaughn, & Cuillo, 2010; Solis et al., 2012).
Why should SLPs focus on language and how does it impact reading? In order to be an effective reader, students need to have decoding skills and language comprehension. We can address vocabulary, background knowledge, verbal reasoning, syntax, and more through speech-language therapy.
Children with better oral language skills are also better readers
– Rogde et al., 2019
Text structure intervention—teaching students to focus on the organization of expository or narrative texts using strategies like summarization or graphic organizers—helps with reading comprehension. For children struggling with academic texts, teaching text structures may be a quicker path to success than working on language skills alone.
– Rogde et al., 2019

Still Got Questions? We’ve Got Answers
The resources found in SLP Elevate cannot be found anywhere else. Are they similar styles to my TpT resources...yes! But they are completely unique and helps you reduce the materials overwhelm. I give you just what you need so you can keep it simple and use the materials with as many groups as possible!
I’m trying to STOP the scroll for resources that leads to a pile of paper you still need work to understand.
These resources are ready-to-go.
With the how-to videos and the “Ask Me Anything” sessions you’ll be able to confidently utilize the materials in multiple ways to meet the needs of your older students.
How big of a time-saver? Resources you can just hit “print” on and modify over and over again.
Now you’ll have to find another excuse for your endless coffee habit!
As a public school SLP with a 60-student caseload, I get you.
I’ve made resources where you can work on everything from language to main idea to inference in a mixed group.
Each kid gets what they need, AND they learn from each other.
It’s all about the “benjamins” (opps, nope, it’s all about the “fun connection”).
When kids are having fun with the resources and connect more to the material, you’ll see way more growth.
I know you’re likely spending your own money on resources, so I make them last as long as possible.
I’ll show you more in the how-to videos on how I use every resource across mixed groups.
And make them last for multiple sessions each.
For many of you, this bundle and the supplementary free materials list will cover the bulk of your monthly planning for older kids.
I work with older kids (5th-6th), so I make resources older kids can relate to visually and topic-wise.
We’re talking photos of older children at school and resources focused on their favorite sports and video games.
No more talking bunnies that start the eye rolls and crossed-arms.
You get ready-to-use resources to have the bulk of your older kids' lessons planned for the month.
Over 100 pages of printable resources and digital resources too!
Literacy-based activities through fiction and nonfiction texts that are at the appropriate reading levels for your older students (even if they are reading below grade level!)
Goals covered: main idea, wh questions, summarizing, inferencing, cause/effect, problem solution, perspective taking, conversation starters, conjunctions, context clues using Tier 2 vocabulary words, author's purpose, and so much more!
And support from myself and the other SLP’s in the exclusive Facebook group. SLP party in the Facebook group!
As well as the training sessions and how-to videos.
The $29 monthly investment would barely cover one set of resources from TPT.
Each month's resources are unique and you can’t get anything like it anywhere else.
Monthly subscriptions are billed month to month. Annual subscriptions are billed year to year. No contract. No obligation. You can cancel your membership at any time.
I ONLY WANT PEOPLE TO JOIN THE MEMBERSHIP IF IT’S RIGHT FOR THEM
The membership isn’t right for you if:
#1: YOU LOVE THE HOURS YOU SPEND PLANNING AND YOU DON’T WANT TO GIVE THAT UP
I get it, planning can be super fun.
It’s like creating the blueprints of the house before you go in and ask the kids to grab a hammer.
I certainly don’t want to take that experience from you if you’re already planning like a pro and have achieved a work-life balance you brag about.
#2: YOU ONLY WORK WITH YOUNGER KIDS
This is what grad school actually gets right.
We get so much theory and practice with younger kids that it’s almost like they forget older kids exist.
If you only work with younger kids, my resources and trainings won’t speak to you.
This bundle will have those hard to come by resources and tips specifically tailored towards older kids.
#3: YOU LOVE FIGURING OUT HOW TO USE A NEW RESOURCE EVERY SESSION
I’m obviously someone who loves figuring things out and testing new resources (why do you think I have so much to share on TPT!).
But there is a balance that needs to be struck between spending hours reinventing the wheel and spending that time with my family and friends.
I create resources to help myself and others save some time in the process.
If it’s your jam to dive into learning new resources every session and you really don’t want to give it up or need to save time, then by all means — enjoy it!
This program is absolutely for anyone who:
Spends hours a month scrolling on TPT
Has a bad habit of collecting resources… and only using them once or twice
Struggles to adapt one resource into multi-group activities
Doesn’t quite have their footing as an SLP (they don’t teach us the older kids in grad school! Why are we teaching them this, again?)
Works with older students
Wants some inspiration via creative resources… feels bored and like their students are bored
Would love to have other SLP’s support them and to ask questions of
Wants the days of being the last car in the school parking lot to be over
Helping you get kids laughing and chatting away
For me, speech is all about creating fun.
Fun = connection over data collection.
Using high-interest resources that are at THEIR LEVEL so they feel confident and willing to take risks.
Gone are the days of scrolling for hours online looking for inspiration or having to bring your laptop to bed to try to relieve the anxiety of the next day's activities.
I know you can have success. Because I use my resources TOO! I balance parenting, time with my husband, and our typical hefty caseloads — by using the resources in fun, smart, multifaceted ways.
Buh bye burnout!
The shift is possible for you. I wasn’t always as confident as an SLP as I am now.
Sure, experience helps. But beyond that it’s a mindset shift toward connection and fun. Bonus! No more data collection taking over your life.
I want to show you it doesn’t have to be a choice between your time OR your students' success.
You truly can have your cake and eat it too with the SLP Elevate Membership!
Will you even know what to do with your new found free time!?
Sneak in those ever elusive date nights with your partner, take the kids to grab ice cream, give the dog a good romp around the park.
Imagine it’s going that well at home AND your therapy room full of chatty, smiley kids.
You deserve having it all.
Also if you like to have other SLP’s who understand exactly what you are going through; who can lend an ear, or a super on-point meme to cheer you up…
Then maybe you would benefit from the support you could get from all of us in the membership.
I’d love to meet you in the exclusive Facebook group and build our happy little SLP Tribe. Join us today!
