      "I’m a pediatric speech pathologist and I love this sequencing set! We use it to sequence events in a story (of course!) but also to expand sentences through detailed descriptions, produce grammatically and syntactically appropriate sentences from simple to complex, make inferences and develop problem-solving skills." – Jennifer S.

      "As a speech therapist of school age-children, these cards come in very handy for so many language goals. These cards can be used to help teach narratives, sequencing skills, drawing inferences, and building sentences. The cards are beautifully made and durable. Each story comes with a card with questions and problem-solving scenarios for the students to answer." – SLP

      "I bought these cards to use with my daughter (7) who is having expressive language difficulties. I needed something a bit more than regular sequencing cards to stimulate her. These cards are more like sequencing scenes and sequencing stories with loads of detail that really help my daughter with her expressive challenge. She is loving them! The card sets come with amazing question cards on each picture which really guide me to work on her language skills. We will save the problem-solving tasks (that the sets include) to practice when she targets that in therapy. Overall a really great product." – Nate

      "I am a speech-language pathologist in a middle school setting, and sometimes it can be difficult to find age-appropriate materials. I love these cards because each story is relevant and relatable, and the illustrations are age-appropriate. I used my Spark cards to target a variety of goals - grammar and syntax, inferencing, social skills, comprehension at all levels, narrative formulation, picture description, and sequencing. I have even used them for my articulation and fluency students - they were great for mixed groups. The cards were also a lifesaver when my schedule was chaotic because this no-prep material made lesson planning easy." – Monica

      After earning her Masters degree as a Speech and Language Pathologist, Spark Innovations founder, Leah Schwed, MA, CCC-SLP, began working with school age children struggling with a variety of language deficits. Among her obligations was creating fun yet educational learning experiences. She noted one common issue again and again, the need for engaging and updated quality materials that encourage children to think and improve language one step at a time. After a decade of experience working with children, she set out to create products and materials that were updated, kid friendly, fun, and multi-functional when used in therapy.

      In 2017 Leah incorporated The Spark Innovations Inc., and the Award Winning Spark Cards were introduced in 2018.
