Speech & Language Game Ideas
The following is a list of educational toys, games, and activities for kids of various ages and abilities. Several of these games are no longer in circulation, but can be found online or used as a reference for a similar game format. These toys help develop a wide range of speech and language skills which include, but are not limited to: following directions (FD), asking/answering a variety of WH questions (WH?), building vocabulary (V), expanding language utterances (MLU), oral motor exercises (OM), using descriptive adjectives (ADJ), creating grammatically correct complete sentences (GCCS), pragmatic language skills (PLS) improving expressive (EL) and receptive (RL) language skills. Use these suggestions at your discretion. These games do not replace direct speech/language therapy services. Talk to your Speech & Language Pathologist about which games he/she recommends or how the game may be modified to better suit your child’s needs.
