"Just rec'd this product and can't believe how much information it covers. If you are looking for a game that covers many different areas of language this is it! Generalizing skills are the most difficult part in teaching any child with difficulties. I highly recommend this game, it covers vocabulary, describing, sequencing, critical thinking, listening, reading and story telling. I was not disappointed with this product."

"I have found Turtle Talk to be beneficial for eliciting language skills. It is primarily designed to address fluency skills. Since language and fluency are often interrelated, the stimulus items, pictures, and hierarchy of language tasks are very helpful. I even use the product to elicit speech when addressing sound system disorders."

"My students really like this game! I use it when working on fluency, language, and articulation carryover. The kids really like getting the turtle tokens."
- SLP - School,  Raleigh, NC

- SLP - School,  Arlington, MA

"Turtle Talk is pretty awesome because of the varied things you can use it with - however I have found that the difficulty level of some of the cards are pretty high for the younger kiddos. When I attempted to use this game with older kiddos, they were turned off by the youthful appearance of the game - so I utilized the cards instead of the board. Good for categories and storytelling."
- Angela D.,  Fort Worth, Texas

"Turtle talk not only is an excellent tool to work on fluency, but also language ...vocabulary, classification, comaprrisons and contrasts, reasoning, and formulation skills. It is a mutifaceted tool."
- Laurie G-R,  Dix Hills, NY

"Turtle Talk is a fun game for my 3-year-olds, as well as my upper elementary students. I love how there is no finish and you can stop whenever you want and the winner is the one with the most tokens. Works well even for shorter therapy sessions. All the kids love the turtle!"
- Courtney W.,  Stafford, VA

"I have been using this game with my ASD students for about 3 years. All my students love it! I teach middle school kids now and it is great that each card can be adapted to that child's level. Previously used it with k-5 students with great success. This game is always a favorite!"

"I work with a number of children who suffer from stuttering and disfluency. After introducing them to this game there speech has dramatically improved. They associate the turtle and how it moves to how they should speak. Slow and steady. It truly is a wonderful game and my kids and I love it immensely."
- Manny S.,  Miami, FL

"We really enjoy the Turtle Talk game. While there are multiple skill levels questions on each card, we enjoy doing all of them (when possible) because it's so much fun. The kids really like getting turtle tokens after completing their turn. We have the child whose turn it is hold the turtle and they LOVE that! Lots of fun. Great for practicing fluency and language! I received a sample in exchange for my honest opinion."
- Miranda W.,  MN

"My two girls are 3 & 6 and both love playing this game with the turtles! I've found them sitting around with the game out a few times trying to play on their own (even though they are not yet able to read the cards by themselves). It's great that the cards have so many options each so you can select what skill level best fits each kid. Great game!"
- Carinn H.,  Grand Rapids, MI

"My 4-year-old loves this game! Sometimes it's fun to just use the cards and ask the questions, but he likes the purpose of moving around the board and collecting tokens from the turtle. The questions are really thought provoking and some too hard for him, but this is definitely a game that can grow with him and we adjust for his age and abilities."
- Emily,  IL

"This is a very cute game. I like that many goals can be targeted and it can be used with multiple students."
- KT,  NC

"My student really enjoyed playing this game. The board, turtle, and tokens were a nice change from our typical cards and magnetic chips. I wish the board were a little more interactive with more evenly spaced sections to land on (spaces) and more than just take 1 or take 2 tokens. But we just created some rules on our own. The cards are useful, or you can easily use a different deck."
- Kate S.,  Allen, TX

"My students LOVE this game! It is very versatile, and can be used for a variety of goals from basic vocabulary and language expansion to fluency. Now I need another one to keep at my second building."
- Barb D.,  Akron, OH

"Love this game! It can be used for all ages and all therapy needs. Kids think it is great, too!"
- Rebecca K.,  Charlotte, NC

"My students from Kindergarten to 4th grade really enjoy playing this game. I love that the materials target a range of different skills beyond fluency. In one group we can target fluency, receptive language, and expressive language. And the kids have fun!"
- Julie R.,  Ohio
