A collection of non-technological, face-to-face, person-to-person word games designed to enhance learning, language, laughter, and love.
This little book contains suggestions and specified word games to promote and stimulate language acquisition, vocabulary, memory, organization and overall communication skills. These games can be used with children of all ages and adults who may have experienced stroke, brain-injury or dementia. There are no required supplies or tokens. There are no screens or electronic devices needed. In fact, they are beneficial for that purpose alone, talking with each other and acknowledging the wonder of words.
