Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a good family game night? A little friendly competition, some yummy snacks and, of course, fun! Games are exciting, motivating, and best of all, they help children learn important speech and language skills without even realizing it!  There are many speech board games that encourage the development of speech, language, and social skills. You can work on everything from learning how to take turns, to categorizing, making inferences, and oral narratives (i.e. story telling). Grab one of the following games for your next family game (and learning!) night!

Best Speech Board Games for Toddlers

These first few games are perfect for toddlers who are just learning to play games as they are not language heavy. These games are great for promoting skills such as joint attention, turn-taking, cause and effect, commenting, and learning basic vocabulary and concepts (i.e. on, off, in, out, next). Some of these games introduce letter, shape and number concepts as well.

The next few games support turn-taking and overall social skills, but delve a little deeper into specific language skills.
