What you'll need:
- Computer to create the game board
- Dice (I couldn't find any dice so I downloaded a dice app on my smartphone-he loved getting to use my phone in therapy!)
- Game pieces (I used two small plastic dinosaurs-you could use almost any small object)
How to create:
I created this game board using a table on a Word document. I made the squares alternating colors that corresponded to a set of colored cards that I printed out. After printing, I hand drew the snakes in-though you could easily find a snake graphic online to insert (or any graphic for a theme that suits the child's interests).
For long-lasting use I would recommend laminating the board/cards. You could use the same board multiple times with numerous clients by having different sets of target words/sounds on hand.
How to play:
Take turns rolling the dice and moving the pieces accordingly. For each space landed on, have the child draw a corresponding color card. The child must at least attempt (or correctly produce) the word on the card to keep his piece on the space. For maximum production, I had my client draw cards for the spaces that I landed on as well. First one to the top wins!
