New Product from Nancy Kaufman for CAS and Language Building!
Your favorite Mutt Family characters are back, and they want you to discover What’s In Your Doghouse? This engaging, hands-on, structured therapy tool will help children with CAS or developmental delays bridge motor speech to expressive language skills without taxing the speech motor planning system.
It’s all about getting a match! Your student(s) will have in front of them a game board and many doghouses, each with a token inside that may or may not be a match to their game board. The first student to get all 7 matches wins! Throughout the game, work with your student(s) to:
Expand language skills.
Produce simple common nouns.
Strengthen the ability to produce simple syllable shapes, especially CVC and simple bisyllabics, such as the Mutt Family character names (Buddy, Heidi, Paddy, etc).
Produce word combinations of two and three words in Verb-Object or Subject-Verb-Object phrases.
Produce grammatically correct sentences.
Improve social interactive language.
With minimal preparation, this can be played with 1 – 6 players. Ideal for group therapy, including children with different levels of functioning. Great for one-on-one therapy too. Depending on your student’s ability, other options of play include:
Focusing on literacy.
Visual memory challenge.
Social skills reinforcement (turn taking, eye contact, etc).
