I have a LOVE for building brick toys! My own three boys grew up with the sets (and when they were younger, I spent countless hours helping them build them). It was precious time that I will remember forever. Now my 12 year old still likes my help but only as the parts person (I hand the next brick/part needed). I have collected BUCKETS full of these toys and I decided to bring them to therapy many years ago to use as a reinforcer. I then thought "How can I use these directly in therapy?" This is how Earn Your Bricks toy companion mats were born. I created language and articulation mats that require the student to practice a speech or language objective to get the toy. I wanted to show you how I use them in therapy (and how I adapt it for different types of learners). Please watch my quick demo below:
Here are the link to the mats on Teachers Pay Teachers. Some are available in bundles (check the item description).
