Our mission is to provide quality speech-language services to children with communication disorders and give support to their families.

- At Home Games to Practice Speech and Language
- Speech and Language Information
- State Foundations
- Referral Form
- You can use a regular deck of cards to review numbers, or you could use other decks of cards (can be found at Wal-Mart, Kmart, etc) that contain pictures of animals, opposites, shapes, colors, etc.
- There are many areas to target while playing Go Fish. Here are just a few examples:
- Practice Formulating Questions: The game gives children an opportunity to practice formulating the question “Do you have a ….” multiple times during the game.
- Vocabulary Development: It may be easier to use a deck of cards that have pictures on them (Again, found at most stores) rather than a regular deck. Additionally, it may be easier to print, cut, and paste pictures onto 3x5’’ index cards to make your own game!
- Articulation Practice: Again, it may be easier to print, cut, and paste your child’s speech sounds on index cards; however, you could also use a regular deck of cards and play a regular game. If you notice a speech sound error, correct and have them repeat your model.
- Description/Definition Practice: Have your child describe the picture they want from you, e.g. Do you have an animal with feathers that flies and lays eggs?
- If you have a memory game, it would be a great chance to strengthen memory skills, same/different concepts, and of course, speech sounds
Picture Walk With Books
- Looking through a variety of picture books with your child will encourage reading, as well as targeting language and speech sounds.
- Have your child describe the pictures they see in a book (using their “good speech sounds,” of course).
