“Nerf guns are the best! There’s nothing more satisfying than scoring a perfect shot to knock a tower of cups flying! Speech pathologists love fun just like kids and so fun is a part of every therapy session! Nerf guns are definitely not limited to destroying things but can keep kids engaged while they build all kinds of communication skills. They are great for kids who need to move their bodies while they are learning. You never grow out of nerf guns!”
