School Specialty's The SpeechBin has many of our sets in Binder Bundles!
The link to the shopping cart in in the upper right of every webpage on our site that has a single product displayed for purchase.
It is a link word that says "View Cart" and "Checkout".
Clicking the big "Add to Cart " button on the right side of a product's web page will add that item to your cart and also show you the online cart you are building and allow you to choose to checkout as well.
Unfortunately there isn't a link button to the online cart on our site's main page or in other pages that don't feature an indivual produc for sale.
How do I enter a discount coupon code?
The coupon code area for our website appears as soon as an item on our site
is selected and chosen for "Add to Cart."
In any of the "View Cart" pages there will be a coupon code box under the ordered items listed
and above the Subtotal amount. The box is labeled: "If applicable, enter a Promotional Code:"
Just type in the code word and choose "Update" to see the discount taken. The code may be entered anytime before you check out.
ONLY ONE code can be used for any total order.
Codes can not be combined.
To get a coupon code, just sign up to receive our monthly emails.
It may take one month for our email to be sent to you since we limit the number of emails we send to usually just once a month!
Can I get your products any cheaper if I order more?
Yes, we have combined many of our items into BINDER BUNDLES that are priced below what they would be if purchased seperately, and plus we include a free SpeechPage.com 3-ring Binder with those purchases. Unfortunately there are far more costs that go into making these type of specialized products and maintaining a distribution system than might be apparent. Most of our products are hand assembled. Products using velcro require more time to assemble. We have LOWERED the price of our products as low as we can to get the materials out to SLPs so they can see the benefits of working with SpeechPage materials. Because of the limited market for these type of specialized materials, there is not the bulk production discount that might comes when making generic items such as a children's book sold at a discount store. However SpeechPage products are specifically designed to try to target the goals you are working on!
Sign up for our email list and we will send you email promotions not available to the general public! Go to the SIGN UP FOR SUPERSAVINGS link on the left to fill out our online form! We do not share information you give us with ANYONE!)
These are specialized products, mostly hand assembled from high quality materials. They are priced as low as we can, however it is likely that the cost of SpeechPage materials will have to be increased soon.
How much is shipping?
S & H ON all online orders and mail in orders with checks is STILL IS ONLY $4.99!!! Shipping AND HANDLING will NOT cost more than $4.99 no matter how big your personal order! Even with Postage Rates Climbing WE KEEP OUR SHIPPING COST LOW FOR YOU! We ship US Priority Mail for a secure delivery within approximately three business days after we finish our processing of your order. We ship anywhere in the continental United States. Sorry, we do not ship anywhere else at this time. (Our usual total delivery time has been within ONE week of receiving your order!!)
FOR P.O. ORDERS:
Due to the additional cost for processing and handling services required for POs, the shipping & handling fee for all POs is 10% of the subtotal for PO orders, with a minimum of $5.00 for Shipping and Handling for all PO orders.

Which sets have removable cards?
Some SpeechPage sets come with laminated removable cards attached to the page with velcro while others are standard laminated pages without any cards attached.
SpeechPages that do have removable/ velcroed cards have the word "Interactive" in the product name. We also describe in the written description when a product does have removable cards, and we usually state the number of removable cards in each set.
The photo of the set will usually show some of the cards removed from the SpeechPage to illustrate the set.
Regarding our Artic Word SpeechPages for example, they do not have removable cards.
Those are laminated pages with 12 illustrations printed on each.
However Artic Word Stack SpeechPage (Found Under: Artic Fun) do have removable cards.
What do SLPs that have used your products think of them?
We do get a lot of nice compliments and good feedback! Even more telling, we get A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF REPEAT CUSTOMERS!!! Nothing pleases us more than to know that the SLPs using SpeechPages are finding them to be useful and worthwhile and helpful for their clients! Read what SLPs have taken the time to write to us at: "What SLPs Say About Us!" Here are just a few recent unsolicited testimonials from SLPs that have purchased mulitple times from SpeechPage:
“I have been very impressed with your materials.”
“I will certainly recommend your company to my colleagues.”
M. H. SLP, Massachusetts
"Your materials were just what I needed. The picture selection, quality and ease of use was really appreciated. Thank you for making my hectic job less stressful!"
S.T.M. Ph.D., SLP/A, Oregon
“I wanted to thank you for my order. It arrived today and looks good!”
C. R. SLP, Ohio
"Hi- Your stuff is great"
"I work in a clinic and the other (SLPs) really like the ease of set up and use of your (materials). I look forward to whatever else you may come up with."
C. M. SLP, Texas
“I am delighted with the materials I purchased last time.
F. B. SLP, Oklahoma
“I am a...school speech pathologist, and I love your materials.”
D. A. SLP, Utah
I am a parent. Can you recommend products for specific cases?
We are sorry that we can not do that. Recommendations for appropriate Speech Language Therapy materials for any specific circumstance cannot be done through correspondence alone, as they can only be made by a qualified Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) that is working directly with the individual following a formal multi-factored Speech and Language evaluation. There are many different aspects of the individual's abilities and degrees of severity of speech pattern differences that must first be determined through formal evaluation by a qualified professional.
To locate a qualified Speech Language Pathologist near you (if you are not currently working with one), please visit the website of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) ASHA.org http://www.asha.org/ and use their ‘Find a Professional’ search tool ASHA's FIND A PROFESSIONAL After a formal evaluation by a Speech Language Pathologist, the SLP may develop recommendations and goals for Speech Language Therapy improvement. The SLP may recommend specific types of practice materials that may assist in carry over of their established goals for Speech/Language improvement outside of the formal therapy sessions. It is likely that SpeechPage.com may have some of the types of materials that can reinforce goals being worked on in Speech Language Therapy. However due to a wide variety of influential factors, decisions for specific therapy products can only be properly made after the treatment plan for the individual has been established by a qualified SLP following appropriate evaluation. SpeechPage Publishing materials are intended for use by a qualified Speech Language Pathologist in structured therapy settings.
Do You Accept Product Submissions From Authors?
Sorry, we do not currently accept any materials or products from prospective authors looking to be published. All SpeechPage.com Publishing Materials are developed in-house so that we can maintain our specific goals and intentions for this company. Currently we have literally dozens of new products in various stages of production for eventual release, and we would not want a prospective author to confuse one of our upcoming materials with a product they are trying to introduce, so please do not submit your pre-published products to us at this time. If our policy on this topic should change we will post it on our website!

Why should I choose materials from SpeechPage.com?
A LARGE number of our customers order even more from us after they have actually received and used their first sets of SpeechPages! In fact we have an ever growing list of SLPs that have come back and ordered NUMEROUS times in just a few weeks! Many customers quickly purchase our newest items as soon as they come out! That tells us that SpeechPage is the answer they have been looking for. Better still, they often write in to tell us how much they LOVE their SpeechPages! Please read the quotes to see how SpeechPages are LOVED BY SLPs!What better testament to the value of SpeechPages than multiple repeat customers and the nice compliments and thank you's they send our way!!
We hear all the time from long time customers at conferences and through emails that our online web photos can not clearly display how colorful and fun our product line is for them and their clients.
SpeechPage.com materials are different in many great ways!
-SLPs & CLIENTS LOVE THEM! SpeechPage.com materials are COLORFUL, FUN, HANDY, and USEFUL! Here is One Testomonial from a Multi Purchase SLP Customer: "I want to let you know that parents/students just LOVE the Home carryover pages. ... Thanks for a great, functional, activity!" D.T. SLP, Illinois
-100% SLP CREATED!! SpeechPage.com materials are written, designed and DRAWN by an SLP with over 20 years of experience. A qualified professional is in control of the creation of the products from start to finish. There is no outside artist trying to interpret what the SLP author intended! There is no usage of a generic clip art CD-rom. ONLY a qualified and experienced SLP is trained and educated in this field, and familiar with what clients respond to, enjoy using and understand. We hope you find SpeechPage materials to be just what you need!
- MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER! SpeechPage.com materials are so EASY to TRANSPORT! Any simple three ring binder can now become the way you carry around a variety of Speech Language Therapy Materials from SpeechPage.com! You can make going from work site to work site a breeze! No one enjoys lugging around a milk crate or a luggage stroller filled with books and boxes of cards do they?
-CUT THE CLUTTER! SpeechPage.com materials are COMPACT and CONCENTRATED! Our WH-Type questions sheet has 600 WH-Type questions on just six pages! Why deal with some heavy book when you can just use a thin stack of SpeechPages that day?
-GET & STAY ORGANIZED! SpeechPage.com materials are EASY to STORE! So many SLPs have limited work space and limited storage facilities. Our materials take up little space and can even be kept in a file cabinet, which most SLPs have access to for record storage.
-JUST WHAT YOU NEED! SpeechPage.com materials cover a VARIETY of cases and a can be used in a variety of ways! Look over our free download of Articulation Therapy Ideas and you will find two pages of suggestions of different ways to present those kinds of materials. Use your imagination and professional discretion to come up with countless more!
What is the past due fee for late payment of an invoice for a PO?
Unfortunately sometimes our invoices for PO's submitted to us do go unpaid for well past the standard 30 day period. When this happens we do allow a grace period, however it requires a great deal of our administrative time to track down the person responsible for payment at the facility that submitted the PO and to send them additional documentation to get the invoice paid. Because of this our stated policy is to charge a $35.00 late fee that will be added to all invoices for POs that remain unpaid for longer than 60 days. This fee will then include interest charged at 15% annual rate calculated monthly if the invoice has not been paid in full 60 days past receipt of our mailed second notice of payment due. The matter may be referred to collection if the invoice is not paid in a timely manner.
What do you mean when you say SpeechPages are concentrated?
Did you ever buy a bulky set of SLP materials that sounded great from the description in the catalog, but when you looked through the many pages after it arrived, you found much of the material was redundant, or practically empty of useful content? Anyone can hire a great artist to draw some pretty pictures, but those pictures don't always translate to effective SLP materials do they? Sometimes you have page after page of semi-empty "practice" activities that seem to be nothing more than simple filler. The professional illustrator is not a Speech Language Pathologist. But with SpeechPage Materials, the Speech Language Pathologist author is also the professional illustrator! Illustrations are drawn from the perspective of therapy intervention from someone that has been doing just that for over 20 years.
Instead of wasting space on your shelf with hundreds of pages that you may never use, SpeechPages offer a compact source of materials that can be used in many different ways for many different clients for many years! Because they are laminated in extra thick 5 mill laminate you can save on Xeroxing by writing on the SpeechPages with a wipe off pen!
PLUS we let you see what your SpeechPages will look like! We could show you one or two "Sample Pages" that look nice and let you have to discover after you buy it if the rest fits your needs, but we think you deserve to see what you will be getting up front!
Does SpeechPage donate to SLP gatherings?
Yes! All the time! Just send us an email describing your event and the number of SLPs attending, and we will see what we can do! We also offer a 'Returnable Product Demo Kit' that allows you to display a number of our products at your events of over 50 SLPs and then return to us at our expense. We can include coupons for discounts off future purchases as well!
How do you suggest an SLP use an item like "Animal Homes" SpeechPages?
Please note: Your actual usage may vary dependent on a student’s abilities as determined by a qualified Speech Language Pathologist’s discretion following evaluation. One of the many great things about SpeechPages is that they can be used in different ways for different clients!
The intent of SpeechPages such as Animal Homes, or Food Category Sort is to provide a format for visually directed discussion with the client. For example in the Animal Homes set, nine different animals are displayed on the top area of the page and three possible home environment locations are on the bottom row. A typical session might involve the client being asked to name each of the animals as well as the place where they probably live choosing from possible three at the bottom of the page.
After each turn given by the client, the therapist might give a statement affirming the correct choice or redirecting the choice and add additional information to teach the concepts targeted. For example, if the client said “That’s a chicken. A chicken lives on a farm!’ The therapist might respond: “That’s correct, the farmer raises the chickens on the farm. The farmer collects the eggs from the chicken and sells them.”
The intent is that the discussion of why their choice for the category sort was correct or not will help them to understand the concepts of this topic and increase their vocabulary and ability to categorize. Having removable pieces is not necessary for the session, as the focus is their understanding of why the items belong within the category rather than just the sorting act itself.
All SpeechPages are laminated in heavy duty 5-mil laminate so you could always use a wipe off marker (or most crayons) in a session. You may choose to allow the client to draw a line to their answer, or simply check off the ones they have discussed. That may make for a more interesting interaction, however the main intent is the instructional value of the material.
How sturdy are your SpeechPages?
Our three hole punched SpeechPages are each color printed and then heat seal laminated! This creates a product designed to last through years of Speech Therapy sessions! Most SpeechPage materials are hand assembled. ALL SPEECHPAGE MATERIALS ARE MADE IN THE USA!
Why do you call them SpeechPages?
Speech Page is a name that captures the essence of our product line. Each item is a standard 8.5 X 11 page size product ready for use in Speech Therapy sessions! Some of our AAC products actually help with communication as low tech Speech Pages! Your materials will always store easliy in a standard 3-ring binder as a every SpeechPage is a speech page!
SpeechPage.com® AND THE SpeechPage.com® LOGO ARE AN OFFICIAL REGISTERED TRADEMARK ON FILE WITH THE UNITED STATES PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE.
Can I buy your products anywhere else?
Yes. For several years now, select special collections of SpeechPage,com Publishing Company's products are also been available through some national catalog companies that carries SLP materials.

I Don't Have PayPal. Do I need to have PayPal to order online?
NO. You do not need to have a Pay Pal account and you DO NOT need to sign up to have a PayPal account to order online from SpeechPage.com!

TO PAY WITH ANY CREDIT CARD ONLINE CHOOSE:
"Add to Cart"
then when you have all your items just choose:

I have lost a piece or a whole SpeechPage, Can I order a replacement?
In most cases yes! You should first send us an email to info @ speechpage.com and describe which piece or page you need. We will reply wether it is possible to replace that part. Our total cost for sending out any replacements begins at $9.99 for one SpeechPage (non-velcroed) or two velcroed pieces and may increase with the number of pieces requested. We will let you know in a reply email the total cost of replacement which should be mailed in to us by check or money order prior to shipment.
Why Do You Process Credit Cards Through PayPal?
http://www.paypal.com/ is a large and trusted company run by eBay.com.
It has an Industry-leading fraud prevention which keeps you safe and secure. PayPal does not reveal your financial information even to us.
By having paypal handle the credit card transaction aspect of the online shopping, we are assured that security is at it's highest possible standard!
SpeechPage.com Is PayPal Verified
I am not familiar with ordering things online.
We realize that ordering items online is a new experience for some people. Our online Shopping cart is verified secure by PayPal since July 2005. We let PayPal process all our online payment activity to be assured of the highest level of online security possible. We the Seller never actually see the credit card information or PayPal account information, as everything is handled securely by PayPal and we are credited for the purchase after the online shopping is completed. This is an extra layer of security that we, and our customers appreciate! PayPal is an industry leader, and a company owned by mulit-billion dollar company Ebay. Once you go through the steps for online ordering, you will probably find it is not that difficult, and most online shopping carts work pretty much the same. Ordering items online can be done from the comfort of home and you can take your time to shop and think about your order. We will only ship an online order after you have completed the entire online shopping portion successfully, and you have received confirmation that your payment was processed. If you feel like you made a mistake, just let us know! We totally understand! We can refund money back to you through PayPal to your Credit Card up to 30 day after your order! At SpeechPage.com we want you to know exactly what you are getting. We try to show clear illustrations and give a discription of all our products. No surprises!

Some customers prefer to print out the order statement in the shopping cart and mail it with your check. We ship most orders next business day. We email you when your order ships. If you do not receive an order within one week of placement please contact us, as that would be very unusual.
Do you use any stock clip art?
NEVER. We have NEVER used generic Clip Art and we Never will. ALL of SpeechPage fun and colorful illustrations are done inhouse by the SLP!
GENERIC CLIP ART FROM a Computer Program, a Commercial clip art CD, OR FROM THE INTERNET WILL NEVER BE USED IN ANY SpeechPage!! Every piece of art is illustrated by the Speech Language Pathologist himself. Don D'Amore MA CCC-SLP has been informally illustrating materials for a wide variety of purposes for over 25 years.
Clip art can often be confusing because of it's generic quality. Stock Clip art often contains numerous off topic details or has a trendy advertising art style that may not properly elicit the stimulus word in your speech therapy session. Just imagine SLP MATERIALS ACTUALLY ILLUSTRATED BY AN EXPERIENCED SLP!! That allows for the drawings to represent just what the SLP wanted! That is one of the Special Features that makes Materials From SpeechPage.com Publishing Company Unique, Useful and Effective!
The OVER use of generic clip art is one of the inspirations for starting SpeechPage.com Publishing! Are you frustrated with some materials that rely on generic 'clip art' for their source material? They may be cheaper or even free, but are they doing the job? Do you have to GIVE the client the word you wanted the artwork to elicit from them? All SLPs know that the modeled speech of the clinician yields different results from the spontaneous expressions of the client on their own. We noticed that some of the individuals we work with may not recognize generalized or vague 'clip art' or simple line drawn images from a CD-Rom collection or from an internet search. It is no wonder! Clip art collections may have been designed for very different purposes such as illustrating a company newsletter, or for another purpose and NOT as a Speech Therapy stimulus tool. Some clip art is simple while another is complex. Even when a clip art program is designed for Speech Therapy, some of the versions of symbols that are in the program may not fit your therapy intention. Every illustration on a SpeechPage material was custom drawn by the SLP and DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THESE PURPOSES.
What does the artwork on a SpeechPage look like?
Unfortunately we can not provide online close ups of any particular SpeechPage due to copyright. We do have full size samples of what the artwork for what some of the illustrated pictures look like on the third page of the FREE HANDOUT for Expressive Language Activity under our FREE STUFF area. This will give you an idea of the artwork style of the illustrator of ALL SpeechPage Material, a 22 PLUS year Practicing Speech Language Pathologist! The style of SpeechPage art has been described by customers as "Fun", "Cartoon-ey", "Colorful" etc. and we have been told many times that clients really enjoy using SpeechPage materials because of the engaging style of the artwork!
Here is a quote from someone that Don D'Amore MA CCC-SLP (author & ILLUSTRATOR of all SpeechPage materials) has illustrated work for in the past:“Don is fantastically creative and thoroughly professional. I called on Don to give me ideas for illustrating my book and several manuals/scripts that I have used when facilitating workshops. Often I‘d have a vague idea of the feel that I wanted for the material though nothing specific. Each time over the years that I have asked Don to read the script, text, or manuscript, he has offered exactly the finished illustrations that really enhanced the final finished product. I recommend Don for creative illustrations without reservation.” ~Dr. Hugh Turner
Are there any SpeechPage Apps For Speech Therapy?
Not Yet! Apps for Speech Therapy is certainly is an area in which we have an interest. One of the greatest things about SpeechPage materials however is that they are hands on learning materials. The products that we produce with interactive velcro cards attached to the pages allow for a tactile learning experience that no display screen can imitate. Also with all the screen time in our students lives already, SpeechPages encourage direct one to one communication interaction with the client. In summary, we are considering expanding into the area of Speech and Language Therapy Apps for mobile devices, but we want any Apps from SpeechPage to be a great benefit to our customers and their clients.
