Did you know that playing board and card games might be one of the BEST things you can do with your child? Kelli Robertson, a GWAEA speech-language pathologist, shares that many critical academic and college/career-ready skills involve cognitive skills that playing games can grow.
Developing these cognitive skills is similar to exercising a muscle. Games help to build flexible thinking and impulse control.
Research shows that 85 percent of the skills needed for career success are soft skills that games can build.
The Harvard Activities Guide references game/activity ideas for building these skills at all age levels from six months through the teenage years.
Join Kelli as she discusses the importance of sharing board games with your child.
