Pediatric Therapy Corner: Classic Games to Strengthen Executive Function (Ages 7+)

Pin It

by Jennifer Hatfield CCC-SLP

If you’ve been following me a while, you know that I’m a BIG…let’s say HUGE…fan of games for developing Executive Function skills. I remember the giddiness that I felt when I read my first research article on how great game playing is for developing cognitive/EF skills {speech and language of course too!}. From that point on, my therapy and coaching took on an entirely new look/feel.

As a parent, I know that trying to carve out more time for something is nearly impossible. In my practice, I have always tried to recommend activities and programs that are easy for families to implement, FUN for all and BIG on benefit for skill development.

Chess, Scrabble, and Pictionary
