“One in 25 U.S. adults will experience a swallowing problem each year and almost 60,000 people die each year because of complications from problems swallowing.”

Video Games and Speech-Language Pathology (SLP)

Video games offer a wide range of benefits which Speech-Language Pathologists can include in their professional services.

This Baltimore Sun article,  focuses on the use of video games to help treat people with swallowing disorders.

At Children’s Communication Center, we use video games with our patients for their language, literacy, learning, and related SLP needs.

My first Nintendo box of goodies!

We continue to be in our “testing” phase to determine the benefits of video game play as an additional tool in our therapeutic sessions in the future.

Thank you, The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association for sharing!
