Learning speech and language should be fun and engaging. Games for speech therapy not only keep your child’s imagination running, they have also been proven to improve speech patterns and articulation.
SpeechTails includes a selection of speech therapy games, exercises, and activities designed to help your child receive and properly articulate language. While these are meant to be supplemental devices, they play an important role in keeping your child focused and interested in speech development and correction.
Speech Games Developed for Kids
Our games have been developed to help children with all types of speech and articulation problems, from speech delays, and slurring, to autism-related problems. Speech-language pathologists will also find great speech therapy ideas from our list, as our tool is designed for use both at-home and within traditional sessions.
Children can greatly benefit from doing one of our games or activities a few times a week. If there’s a specific area or skill that you want your child to work on, we have just the right resources for that. From articulation cards, puzzles, auditory games, to matching activities, you have many options to spice up your child’s learning experience.
Complete your speech therapy sessions with Speech Tail’s vast resource of games to play with your child. Get in touch with us, today, or try our free Speech Screener.
