These digital game companions for speech therapy were created to help you make the most of your favorite board games. They are no prep and no print!! Just grab your device and the actual game and you are ready to play! Spin the spinner to reveal your game piece/s and your speech word. Choose to target one of the 14 phonemes included or use the open-ended spinner with the included themed editable worksheets to target any other goal you need to target! Just add you targets to the worksheet/s, print, spin and play! Great for mixed groups!
These activities open in PowerPoint on both iPads AND computers (that means smart boards too)! The free iPad based version of PowerPoint is perfect for this game companion!!

If you are using these on a computer, you will need to open them in the desktop version of PowerPoint (2016 or newer). We can NOT guarantee these will work in the browser-based web app version of PowerPoint on a computer.
To play these games in teletherapy you need to open the game on your computer and then share your screen within your teletherapy platform. Then IF your platform allows it you can share mouse controls so the student can interact with the game. This step is NOT essential, you can still use these in a fun engaging way without giving mouse controls, you can just interact with the game for the student. In this situation I have the student tell me what to choose and when to do certain things in the game. It helps them maintain a sense of control and participation.
