Kaufman What’s in Your Doghouse is an interactive and structured therapeutic tool designed to assist children with apraxia or developmental delays in connecting speech-motor coordination with expressive language skills. This engaging activity involves children actively exploring doghouses to uncover tokens that correspond to their game board.

Throughout the game, speech-language pathologists (SLPs) can address motor planning for various language elements, such as common nouns, pivot phrases, question formation, social language skills, and the introduction of syntax and morphology, including pronouns, articles, auxiliary verbs, and more. This versatile therapy game requires minimal preparation time and accommodates 1 to 6 players, making it particularly suitable for group therapy sessions involving children with diverse functioning levels.

How It Works:

Children take turns opening the Mutt Family doghouses in search of tokens that match their game board. The tokens feature simple nouns from Kaufman Kit 1 that the SLP can use to guide the therapy session. The first student to get all 7 matches wins!

Therapy Targets:

  • Practice simple motor planning for nouns found in Kaufman Kit 1.
  • Pivot phrases. Open___. Take out___. I have a___.
  • Question formulation. Did you get a___? Do you need a___?
  • Social language. My turn. Your turn. What did you get?
  • Visual matching and early literacy skills.
  • Syntax and morphology: pronouns, auxiliary verbs, articles, and more.
