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.
☛ 2 castle and 2 pirate ship scenes to use as the backgrounds and
☛ 40 pictures of objects and people to use to set into the scenes.
