Modern Pacing Board with Fun Visual Cues

Turtle Pacing Board is a modern pacing board for speech. It is designed to help children with unclear articulation and a fast speaking rate to pace their speech and improve their intelligibility in conversation. It consists of a turtle pacing board made of 6 turtles and over 100 optional conversation questions.

Unlike traditional pacing boards, Turtle Pacing Board offers the child additional visual cues and feedback to help them to slow their rate of speech.

HOW 

to use Turtle Pacing Board

  • Choose a conversation topic

  • Answer the conversation starter question

  • Say one word or syllable per circle 

  • Wait for each turtle to fill with colour and get bigger before pressing the next turtle in the pacing board and saying the next syllable or word

  • Adjust the speed at which the turtles in the pacing board fill with colour using the slider bar

THERAPY TIPS

for Turtle Pacing Board
