Okay, you got me. I will admit it. I have jumped on the Cariboo craze for speech therapy. My students, ranging from 2-10 years old, LOVE Cariboo. I don't necessarily get it, but I am not complaining.
They are motivated, enjoying themselves, AND get A LOT of speech and language practice. For articulation alone, I can get more than 30 reps in just minutes.
