My daughter is five and she is struggling with her language skills. There are about 5 sounds that she just can’t say. It is worry us, so we’ve made an appointment with our family doctor to get a referral for a speech therapist.
Do your children have any speech delays?
When I had the opportunity to review amazing toys and games from Super Duper Publications that were fun but also helpful for children with language development, I was so happy. Plus, my daughter LOVES games. She pulls down a game from our newly organized game closet daily for us to play with her.
The new games we received from Super Duper Publications will be nicely wrapped under our tree on Christmas Eve. I cannot wait to see her face when she opens them!

Word Joggers for Categories is a fun bingo game with colorful boards and cards that target language processing skills needed for identifying, describing plus categorizing items. The vocabulary addresses six common categories (Animals, Food, Clothing, Home, School, and Transportation), with 24 items per category.

Each of the 480 Super Dough Dollars reviews a language skill that is crucial in expanding word knowledge.
8. Hopping Frogs® Language Game • Grades Pre K+
You don’t need to read to get hopping on this fun board game.This hands-on game combines the fun of children helping their frogs “jump” from the “frog pond” (board) to their “lily pads” with development of early language and articulation skills.

Each sound has specific question cards for initial, medial and final positions in single words.
9. 500 Prefixes, Suffixes and Stems Super Fun Deck • Grades 4+
Recall from grade school the difference between ante and anti? Knowing the meaning of various word parts can greatly expand students’ vocabulary and help them figure out the meaning of words they have never seen or heard. This unique deck presents 500 illustrated prefixes, suffixes, and stems. One side of each card presents a word part and its meaning, along with two words (using the word part) and their definitions.

I am absolutely going to order some of these! I have 2 little girls starting my childcare who need some work with sounds as well and these can really help. I appreciate you telling me about this company because in all of my shopping and searches online, I have never heard of them.
I am very thankful for these games. I wish I had them a year ago! Keep me updated Jenny. I’d love to hear how your little girls are doing in their language development.
