We’re a few months into the school year, the leaves are starting to turn, and the sweltering summer temperatures finally seem to have come to an end!
To welcome fall, and the spookiest holiday of the year, we wanted to list some killer interactive games and activities to help reinforce your child’s speech and occupational therapy learnings at home.
Storymatic Kids – $29.95 – Amazon
A unique draw-a-card game, much like apples to apples, stimulates creativity by drawing character descriptors and story plot points – while you make up the rest. Best suited for those 5 and up this game is perfect for speech development:
- build vocabulary
- associate ideas to build a coherent story
- collaborate with classmates on storytelling or writing goals
- carryover for stuttering and articulation therapy
- teach elements of a good story–characters, setting, problem, solution (the only 2 rules for this game are that your character has to change through the story and stay alive)!)
Feed the Woozle – $19.99 – Amazon
This is a fantastic, whimsical game, that incorporates movement, to target not only fine- and gross- motor learning, but articulation and social skills as well.
With increasing levels of difficulty, correlated to age or ability, this game is appropriate from toddlers on up.
