As Speech Pathologists we are the queens and kings of adapting materials to fit the needs of our student’s speech and language goals.
Why I love using games in speech therapy
- Lesson planning is easier and quicker when I can use ONE game for multiple goals.
- My students are more engaged and motivated to practice their goals when I use games.
- I am more engaged! Yes, bringing in new ways to use games keeps this SLP inspired during therapy sessions.
- Using games teaches soooooo many executive functioning and social skills. I love incorporating as many skills as I can in speech therapy.
Where I find my games for speech therapy
When I have time, I will go to garage sales and good will for a game hunt! If I don’t want to wait for the bargain, I look on amazon prime or head to Target. Here are some links to favorite games that I LOVE and highly recommend.
