My wife is a Speech Pathologist in training - any SLPs out there -know of any games that she could use in therapy sessions?

She meets with a 60 year old in a wheel chair once a week for an hour..part of her school clinic studies.

He has the use of one hand and wants to practice using his IPad to communicate...he also writes on a white board.

Anyone out there have experience with this, and if so, are there any great games that could be used to help someone practice their speech communication?

Thanks!

My wife is an SLP but works primarily with fluency issues, specializing in stuttering. She plays a lot of games with client but they don't have the physical limitations.

She works with lots of kids, so Headbanz, Guess Who, etc dominate the selection. Maybe a more adult game might be Concept or a good co-op that's not too long? Forgotten Desert, Hanabi (with a card holder), etc? I'm no SLP though so I will ask her this weekend.

For younger kids, you might try Slamwich, by Gamewright. The game mechanics are like Snap, but it involves sandwich fillings. When we play with our family, we always have the most fun when we call out the filling as we play it ("pickles!", "cheese!", "peanut butter!" - "eew!") Similarly, a classic Memory game might work if you name the pictures as you flip them over.

I have been an SLP for 10 years and I use games in therapy with many adults. Send me a private message with some more details and maybe I can give you some good suggestions. I have mostly used iPad applications for cognitive therapy and for biofeedback with voice therapy.
