SLPs on TPT Resource List (Updated 12/12)

It's here! Thanksgiving week! I hope you’ll be spending time with your family and taking the time to cherish those wonderful people in your life.

This week also marks some big spending days. While you're Christmas shopping this week I also hope

you'll think of your fellow SLPs. In the last 6 months there has been a huge rush of those joining TPT, sharing their knowledge and skill.  During ‘Small Business Saturday’ and ‘Cyber Monday' consider supporting your fellow SLPs. To help you easily find those SLPs, I developed a resource list of SLPs on TPT. 

The purchases I have made on TPT have helped me save time and money! They are made by real SLP's who use these materials in their speech room! At the very least, it will get your creative juices flowing by browsing! Here are a few hints for ways to support your fellow SLP's and get some awesome materials.

When you click on a link to someone's TPT store you will see their 'store.' If you click on the 'Follow Me', button, you will get email updates when that person adds new items. If I see a title in the email list that interests me I can click on it and get back to the store easily. 

You can also search TPT. In this example, I searched 'Speech Therapy.' Then I selected 'best seller.' You can also narrow your search by age levels on the left hand side. 

I thought I would share a few ways I decide about TPT purchases if it's a new-to-me seller. If you buy on TPT you instantly get the download. Awesome right? The only catch is, if you aren't happy there's no guaranteed return policy. Here's what I look for before I buy.  Start by looking at the sellers rating. They have a score out of 4 stars. Under those stars you can see how many votes make up that score. It should give you a good idea of how people who have purchased feel about the quality of the downloads. 

You can also look at a specific items rating. Click on the ratings and comments section. You will be able to scroll through everyone comments and ratings for that specific download. 

This week on Facebook, I asked SLPs to send me their TPT links. The following list includes anyone who sent their link. I'm sure some stores will be full of materials, while others are just starting. Take some time to look into all the stores. If you find something you need, remember you're supporting fellow SLP's and most items cost less than a cup of coffee!

TPT is throwing a sale on Cyber Monday and Bonus Tuesday. You can get an immediate 10% off using promocode: CMT12. It's then up each individual SLP to determine if they will include other discounts to get you a possible 28% in discounts! Check with each individual store to determine what discounts are available. 

In no particular order check out over 50 SLP TPT Stores!
