Using Cups as a Reinforcer in Speech Therapy

I love taking everyday items I have on hand and turning them into a fun therapy activity!

I have found that Dixie or Solo cups are a great reinforcer for students. This reinforcer can be used with students one on one or in groups. I provide my students with a short task (e.g., say your word 5 times) and then I reward them by giving them a cup to stack. Children love making a tall tower and knocking it down at the end.
