6 Ways to Use Ball Poppers in Speech Therapy
Ball poppers are a versatile toy and fun way to elicit language in speech therapy! You can use them to target many language goals, they are highly motivating and engaging, low cost, and can be used with a wide age range.
Poppers are a simple toy that when squeezed, a foam ball shoots out of its mouth. It comes in many fun designs and mini versions! You can find them on Amazon and in toy stores. I have discovered the Hog Wild brand to be much more reliable when it comes to the balls popping compared to cheaper brands.
TIP: The more firm you place the ball in the mouth of the popper, the harder it will be to squeeze and the farther it will go. This makes it easily adaptable for different ages.
