Product Description
This visual (Boardmaker based) picture board for adapted game participation helps students develop functional communication skills, including basic turn taking, requesting, and commenting. It is designed for use with the Fisher Price “Go Fish“ preschool game.* This visual support allows both verbal and non-verbal students to participate in an age appropriate, social early-learning activity.

The therapist can provide physical models (pointing to pictures), verbal models, and hand over hand assistance as needed. Peer models may also be incorporated.

The following functional language skills are targeted:

-Students request the color boat they would like
-Students request a turn to “go fish” (Therapist withholds fishing pole to elicit request & provides pole to student once an attempt at a request is made)

-Students verbalize/point to state the color / number of the fish they caught
-Students verbalize/point to indicate whether the fish matches their color boat
-Students verbalize/point to indicate where to place the fish; in the boat or back on the table

Turn Taking:
-Students verbalize / point to indicate whether it is their turn or a peer’s turn

Combining words / Expanding Utterance Length
-2 word phrases, including: “My turn”; “Your Turn”
-3 word phrases, including: “Put fish back”
-4 word simple sentences, including: “I want ____ (color) boat”; “I found _____ (color / number) fish)”; “Put fish in boat”

The following early learning skills are targeted:
-Basic concepts of “same” and “different” are introduced, as students must identify whether the item is a “match” or “not a match.”
-Color identification
-Number identification
