Shrimp Cocktail Game is a Wonderful Addition to Your Therapy Toolbox!

Last week I sat down with two of my students who have visual perceptual processing problems and played a game of Shrimp Cocktail. We all had a blast! Little did the students know, they were working on a variety of skills, including the ability to respond quickly, visually scan, categorize, and discriminate! The adorable shrimp on the cards can share up to 4 traits: size, origin, color, and/or quantity. The first player to find a match and squeezes a squeaky starfish gets to keep the matching cards. At the end of the game, the player with the most cards wins! This game has so many therapeutic benefits and is a must have for every therapist’s toolbox! It's available on Amazon.
