These articulation mats were designed to accompany the popular game where students pull objects out of a big head! It is a commonly known fact that speech therapists use popular board games to make therapy fun for their students. I looked at all of my games and decided that I needed a way to make playing them more directly therapeutic! This is how all of my game companions were born! I hope you enjoy this latest edition! Don’t forget to check out other game companions! (games not included with purchase, you must own the game).

How to play
To use: Set up and play the game as directed (objects in the head and cards in a stack). Place a What’s In There mat in front of each student (according to their articulation target).
• The student will draw a card and place it on the mat in the space labeled “place card here”.
• They will then roll the die and say the word by the number they rolled (under the card). The therapist will determine how many trials for each turn (example: say the word 5 times on each turn).
• The student will then reach inside the head and try to feel for the object on the card. If they find the correct object, they get to keep the card on their mat and keep the object by them (the goal of the game it to find as many items as you can). If they do not find the object on the card, they will put the card at the bottom of the stack and put the object back in the head.
• Suggestion: When I play this with my students, I make them do extra trials if they do not find the right item. I have them roll the die again and practice an additional target five more times!
• As they find the objects, continue putting the cards on the mat. After the four card spots are full, they will stack the next card on top of a card already on the mat
