The Egg Carton Game was created years ago as a tool clinicians can use to engage children in a exciting, unpredictable game. It can be used with various disorders, in particular, cluttering. Cluttering is a dynamic disorder characterized by rapid speech rate and disrupted rhythm. The therapy process should help prepare clients for managing rate through modification strategies.
