Boom Learning Cards

With the threat of Covid-19, many parents and SLPs have found themselves connecting in a new way: teletherapy.  Boom Learning is a great option for both therapists and students to use to work on speech and language goals.  It can be used on a variety of platforms...,and so far, my experience has led to a lot of giggles, laughs, and fun! 

  • On zoom, the therapist can connect with the student on their computer, ipad, phone, or other device.  The SLP can share her screen with the child to show pictures, songs, videos, and play games!  There is even an option to share control of the mouse so that the child can manipulate the pieces too!  
  • The SLP can assign card decks to parents for their children to practice during the week.
  •  To use Boom Cards, you must be connected to the internet. Boom Cards play on modern browsers (Firefox, Edge, Safari, and Chrome). The Boom Learning app is available on Android, iPad, iPhone, and Kindle Fire. For privacy and security purposes, an adult must have an account to assign and use the Boom Cards. You will be able to assign the Boom Cards you are purchasing as “Fast Pins” (this provides instant feedback for the games played). Fast play is a free way for students to use Boom Card decks. For additional assignment types, you’ll need a premium account. If you are new to Boom Learning, you will be offered a free trial for the premium account. Read here for details.
So far, I've made three games on Boom Learning (and I'm working to make more as quickly as time allows).  These decks correspond to the tutorials on fricatives /v/ and /f/ found here and here.  

Here is a sneak peak of a game of Boom Cards:

These are available to purchase on Boom Learning and on Teachers Pay Teachers.
