Display for Speech and Language Games

Help me give my students a bookshelf to display all of our speech games so they can make choices and use language to select desired items.

My Students

I am a speech-language pathologist in an educational setting in New Jersey. Most of my caseload is made up of students from preschool through fourth grade. I would estimate that 80% of my caseload is preschoolers/elementary students with special needs. Their degree of severity is from mild to severe and some are nonverbal. All have difficulties and/or delays with receptive and expressive language, social skills, pragmatics, and articulation. My students are very motivated with the use of technology. Now I want to help them find new motivation through traditional games similar to the ones I grew up with.

My Project

We were lucky enough to get some really amazing games for speech and Language! However, now I would like to organize and display the games in a way that would encourage students to get excited and create communication opportunities. Scanning, making choices, and communicating their wants are part of the student's goals for language development. Having bookshelves where they can visually see games can also elicit communication by presenting desired items out of reach so they can see it and have to use language to communicate. This would be great a way to display the wonderful games we have received so far.
