||CleanEpisode 9: Dave Hammer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania||This very special episode of SLP Trivia Fun is from the live taping that took place on Thursday, November 15th, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts. During this wild ride, we were joined by Dave Hammer from Apraxia Kids (a leading nonprofit organization that supports children with childhood apraxia of speech). We had a good ol' time talkin' about one of the most popular board games that can be found in almost every speech-language therapy room - Scrabble! Terrific Scrabble facts were shared such as what was the original name of Scrabble and how many tiles are in the American version of the board game (and the Italian and Portguese versions, too)? All of that and so much more. Trust me, you're not going to want to miss this 9th episode. Enjoy!||11/29/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
