Katie:
Hey everyone. It’s Katie again. Just to recap. In my first video, I explained the importance of social and
verbal routines in targeting early language skills. I gave a few examples of some of the games I use in
therapy. This video will let you see a few more examples. The first video shows the child and I
participating in a tickle social game. My turn versus your turn was targeted in this activity. Notice that as
she grows comfortable with the game, she begins to initiate the game on her own.

Katie:
Tickle, tickle, tickle you. Okay, let’s do the dinosaur. I’m gonna tickle, tickle, tickle, tickle you. Your turn.

Olivia:

tickle, tickle, tickle, tickle you.

The next video shows us singing “Ring Around the Rosy”. The concepts of fast, slow, go, stop and up,
down were addressed in this game. Also, the child was cued to ask for more cycles of the game by
stating either go, please, fast, please. Or I want fast. As the game progresses, stuffed animals were
introduced, which gave me the opportunity to go over some animal names. As you can see, lots of
different goals can be targeted during one game. Ring around the rosy, pocket full of posie. Ashes, ashes, we all fall down. Up, up, up. You want to go fast? Ring around the rosy, pocket full of posie. Ashes, ashes, we all fall down. You want to go up, up, up? You ready? Say go, “Go.”

Imitation of motor movement, in this case, waving, and concepts up, down were addressed. As the child starts to get the hang of it. Her name was introduced to the routine. Imitating her first name was a very specific goal that the family wanted to work on. Notice how simple it was to include in the routine.

From the examples provided you can see the importance of using social games and verbal routines. They help build social skills, increase attention skills, and build connections with the child. Any child can
benefit from the use of these games. I hope these videos give you some examples of how to use social
games and verbal routines. Now it’s time for you to give it a try.
