Fluency Card Games

Ages: 8-15
Grades: 3-10

Motivating card games give students valuable experience in talking about their feelings and practicing a variety of new speech behaviors. Six different card games facilitate therapy for the emotional, physical, and cognitive aspects of stuttering.

Students practice skills in a fun, comfortable environment with games like Go Fish, War, Pyramid, and more! The games can supplement any fluency program including a "speak more fluently," "stutter more fluently," and "integrated approach."

There are four 54-card decks loaded with relevant stimuli that prompt students to share their feelings and practice speech behaviors:
