Barrier games are known to be one of the most valuable tools in a speech pathologist's toolbag. Some barrier games, however, have too many variables and do not foster specific and succinct communication.
My First Barrier Games provides simple pictures that are non-ambiguous. Each picture targets a specific concept - either a preposition (under, in, on) or an adjective (long, short, big, little). Children are assisted in using these words in a carefully graded manner – first there are only two variables and later there are more and more. This is all explained later in the manual.
The following concepts are explored:
big-little long-short dirty-clean happy-sad on-under in-next to top-bottom top- middle - bottom in front of-behind square-round front-back half-whole mixed prepositions
- Activities can be carefully graded to suit the abilities and needs of the child.
- Two-part instructions can be built up to four-part when the child is able.
