    Such a useful resource to use in therapy, children find it very engaging and you can achieve lots of repetitions of target sounds.

    I have used this a lot with my students since purchasing it! I love how easy it is to grab boom cards and how engaging it is for students. I love the variety of practice options provided, and my students definitely love it, too. I wish there was also a 2-element cluster boom card deck, too 😉
