Play-Based Speech Therapy
Perfect for late talkers
Play-based interventions are practices designed to improve socio-emotional, physical, language, and cognitive development through guided interactive play.
During play sessions, an interventionist uses strategies including modeling, verbal redirection, reinforcement, and indirect instruction to sustain and encourage child play activities.
Play-based speech therapy is when a speech pathologist (SLP) plans speech and/or language activities around a play toy or activity. The SLP will create opportunities for the child to practice the target skill while enjoying motivating toys and activities that are relevant to the child’s interests.
Children are motivated to engage and communicate when playing with materials of interest.
Play-based therapy helps increase attention and build better positive interactions.
Children learn the social skills necessary for playing with toys and make progress on speech and/or language goals in a naturalistic setting.
The child will make better connections with real-life events and will improve memory.
