Games We Play in Speech

Help me give my students fun opportunities to learn and practice communication skills during speech therapy by funding engaging games.

My Students

I provide Speech Therapy to preschool and elementary aged students who struggle to communicate. Some students are just learning to use and understand words, some are practicing speech sounds so they can pronounce words better, some are working to make their speech smooth and fluent, and some are learning how to think about words and word meanings flexibly.

One thing that all of my students have in common is that they all love to play games.

Games are very important in speech therapy; we can learn to take turns, to wait and control impulses, to win and lose gracefully, and each turn provides my students opportunities for practice while keeping them interested, engaged, and motivated.

My Project

I work with approximately 10 groups of elementary students each day with each group consisting of 2-4 students. Inevitably, each time I travel around school collecting my new group, one student always asks, "what game are we playing today?" Having choices of games and activities that encourage conversation, laughter, and lots of practice, my students eagerly anticipate their speech therapy sessions. I am sure that my students will absolutely love playing games like "5 Second Rule Jr.", "Yeti in My Spaghetti", and "Brain Freeze!"

Your donations of motivating games will help keep my speech students excited about practice, which promotes success with learning individualized communication skills.

Most speech therapy sessions are about 30 minutes long and consist of small groups of students who are all working on different skills. I can individualize opportunities for practice and differentiate teaching while maintaining attention and engagement using a single game in each group.

By providing my preschool 5th grade students with opportunities to engage while playing games, they are learning valuable life lessons ranging from turn-taking, word play, the value of practice, and impulse control. Playing games also provides my students with opportunities to practice communication skills, such as using and combining words, following directions, describing and defining, producing target speech sounds, answering questions, problem-solving, reasoning, and critical thinking skills.
