What’s your favourite toy?

“I had to pick the fishing game because it used to be my nephew’s favourite game and he always requested that we played with it when ever he came to visit me. I see that same fascination, joy, and challenge in the eyes of the children I see in the clinic – it is a great game of skill, excitement and laughs. I also love this game because it provides so many flexible opportunities to engage in speech and language skills such as vocabulary e.g., colours, concepts ‘less, more, empty, full’; grammar ‘fishing, caught’, eye-hand coordination, fine motor control – the list goes on! “
