What’s your favourite toy?

As a child I always loved playing board games with ‘Guess Who’ being one of my favourites. It was a game that I didn’t have to convince others to play unlike Monopoly, which was too long!

I loved the feeling of finally figuring out who the character was by problem solving and asking the right questions.

“Guess Who” is a versatile game that can support a variety of goals such as yes/no questions, vocabulary, grammar and speech. It can also be used for social skills such as turn- taking or winning and losing.

Games such as “Guess who” create a fun and relaxed environment where children are working on their therapy goals without even realising it.
