7 of Our Favorite Websites for Teletherapy

These are 7 of our favorite sites to use with teletherapy clients. I only work with children diagnosed with Speech Sound Disorders, but you can easily adapt many of them for other target goals. They can be used for play-based therapy activities or as reinforcements in drill-play sessions.

Pinkcat Games You can create your own word lists or use premade word lists. A few game options are available for the free version, and many more if you pay a membership. Memberships are affordable. Every one of my clients has found games that they find fun and exciting; this is their absolute favorite and makes planning a breeze!

ABCYa Games There are so many games that you can use as a reinforcer or in play-based therapy to target a child’s target sounds. I love to use all the “Make A” games. They have themed games that you can use with holidays and seasons, as well as games you can use year-round. There is something here for every child. Molly the Unicorn is another excellent option because children can decide where Molly goes along her journey to find some magic sprinkles for her donuts.

JeopardyLab This is another wonderful site where you can create your own games or use premade games. I formulate questions using a child’s target sound or choose a preferred topic to work on speech sounds at the conversation level. It’s an engaging activity for older clients. You should check all the questions to ensure they are appropriate and relevant.

Lego City All of my clients love this site. They can design their own city and see animations and comic strips at each location. You can target many sounds in a play-based activity using this free site.

Simon’s Cat I like to use these short, silly videos about a mischievous cat. Children find the videos to be fun and engaging. I use these videos for conversational-level speech activities. I’ll pause the video to discuss predictions, the character’s thoughts, and emotions and follow up with a retell activity at the end.

Highlights Hidden PIctures This is an excellent activity for older children. They have a list of items that are hidden within the picture scene. It can be a great reinforcer or great practice while using their speech sounds in target phrases or unstructured conversational speech.

Hooda Math Escape Games This activity is fun and engaging, especially for older clients. It is excellent for practicing /ɹ/ in a natural context. You can also use it as a reinforcement activity.
