Barrier games have long been used by speech-language pathologists for developing language skills for giving and following directions using spatial concepts and descriptive concepts. Having a pair of students take turns giving and following directions develops concise directing and describing skills in a fun activity.
Students learn to listen carefully, and the therapist/teacher is able to focus on scaffolding and teaching such skills as chunking and re-auditorization without having to simultaneously be giving the auditory input.
Yes, barrier games are a time-honored way to develop language processing skills, describing skills, and direction giving skills in students who struggle with understanding and giving directions and descriptions in speech therapy. But did you know they also work wonderfully for distance learning, too?
It's easy to create a simple paper 'barrier' when you're already at a distance, whether between you and a student or two students. Then work in whichever direction best fits the needs of your students for processing or formulating language.
These themed barrier sets are guaranteed to keep students engaged through multiple sessions.
