My Favorite Games For Older Speech Students




There’s nothing like a fun game to get students relaxed and engaged in learning! 

Do you play games with your speech therapy students? 

Playing games in your classroom has many benefits and can really improve social skills as well as executive functioning skills. 

When you have older students like those in middle school and high school, it can be harder to come up with game ideas that are interesting enough to get them engaged in your lessons. 

In this episode of SLP Coffee Talk, I am sharing some games that even older speech therapy students will love! 

These games are hands-on, unique, and fun. They are great for incorporating into speech therapy lessons so that you can get your students involved in new and interesting ways. 


In This Episode You’ll Discover:

  • The benefits of playing games in your classroom
  • My favorite 3 games to use in therapy
  • Some other generic games you can play with your students
  • How these games help with social skills and executive functioning skills


I love using games with my speech therapy students to help them perfect their skills and reach their goals faster.

After listening to this episode, I hope you are inspired to incorporate some of these games with your students!

There are lots of games you can play in your speech therapy lessons that your students will find genuinely interesting and fun. Start with the ones I mentioned in this episode and let me know how it goes! They are all linked below!
