DON’T FORGET THE GAMES!!
I was recently contacted by the creator of Play On Words, Sherry Artemenko, to write a guest post sharing a couple of my app reviews. Her blog recognizes exceptional toys and games that promote language development in children. As I have been in the school setting for several years, I have appreciated using her site to get reconnected with what’s new in the world of play, specifically as it relates to play-based therapy. In a recent post, she mentions the newest trend noted at the New York International Toy Fair of pairing iPad apps with traditional board games like LIFE. I also appreciated her recent post sending a shout out to school-based therapist and the work they do!
I also plan to use her website as a resource for parents looking for things to do at home with their children with communication delays. We have so little time to spend as families these days that I love to send parents home with “homework” that involves fun and games, sharing a laugh and hopefully, learning a little language. So check out Play on Words for the latest and greatest in the world of play.
