HedBanzcurrently published by Spin Master. In addition to the general game, there is also a Disney version of the game. Hedbanz is, at its heart, 20 Questions in reverse. Each of the players puts on a fashionable blue rulfs headband and puts one of the picture cards in the headband without looking at it.

When an object is correctly guessed, the player takes a new card and continues. The scoring system in the game starts each player with three chips; a player who correctly guesses an object loses a chip, and a player can give up on guessing an object and get a new card if they take a chip. The first player to lose all their chips wins.

The game also comes with prompt cards that hedbans a number of sample questions for modeling. Hedbanz is a popular and easy to find game for speech therapy.

A humorous and educational look at speech pathology. Board Games and Speech Therapy: Item Description — Describing items, in small chunks, is the primary skill of the game. This game addresses item description in multiple ways — the player who is guessing the object needs to think of a method of describing an item color, size, features, categoryand the players answering the questions need to accurately describe the item.

Auditory Recall and Synthesis — The player who is guessing the object needs to be able to recall the answers to previous questions and synthesize the answers given into a mental picture of the object.

The content is entertaining: The visualization of the game itself — wearing pictures on your head with a blue plastic headband — is, for many students, entertaining enough that they enjoy the game, even if it challenges them.

While each card has a word on it, in most cases, the word is just an additional prompt; the pictures themselves can provide enough information for the student to know what the object is.

This is one of the few games in my collection that encourages students to collaborate rather than compete the other notable one being Backseat Drawing. Because the student asking questions needs a single answer to get a good idea of what their object is, requiring the other students to collaborate and come up with a single answer promotes teamwork skills. Timed games are terrible for students with processing issues or delayed responses. Furthermore, they put the focus of the game on speed rather than accuracy.

Positive behavior support practices indicate that when a student does something correctly, they should be given a token to reinforce the behavior. This game takes a token away from a student who answers correctly and gives a token to a student who gives up. Get rid of the timer: Timed games focus on speed rather than accuracy. By eliminating the time pressure, students are better able to focus on the language objectives.


Get rid of the tokens: Getting rid of the tokens and allowing students to keep correctly guessed cards as points similar to how Apples to Apples scores provides positive reinforcement and allows the game to proceed indefinitely or as long as the treatment session allows. Visual prompts for questions: Using the EET, I make question generation for my students a two-step process: The cards are great for sorting for categorizing activities — having students take the cards and put them in categories based on location, function, color, or any other group can provide students with a visual or kinesthetic reference to reinforce the information.

The headbands themselves can be used to add guesswork to another game for additional challenge or just variation. For example, using the headbands with the Storybook Game can provide a student with the most recent three or four words used to help reinforce the most recent additions to the story. Similarly, putting the prompt card in Backseat Drawing into a headband allows all the students to give drawing directions while the artist guesses what he or she is drawing.
