Looking for some ideas on how to encourage word finding skills with your speech therapy clients? Would you like to teach them some strategies to use to help them when they are "stuck" and can not get the word out loud, even though they say they know the word?
Perhaps they have suffered from a TBI, concussion or stroke and are experiencing a neurological change or expressive aphasia? Or, maybe they are having changes in cognitive-linguistic skills that have unfortunately started due to a brain tumor, brain infection, epilepsy or a neurological disorder.
If you have clients with word finding problems, than please review this handout with them. It will supply 12 strategies on how to retrieve the words that are often on, "The tip of their tongues."
The contents of this unit are as follows:
Page 3: A handout explaining 12 word retrieval strategies. This handout is in color and contains the reasoning for the strategy.
Page 4: A black-ink version of the above mentioned detailed handout,“12 Word Retrieval Strategies.”
Pages 5-6: One colored-ink and one black-ink only 12 Word Retrieval Strategies handouts containing shorter explanations and bigger picture examples.
Page 7: Alphabet Board. Use this board to scan for the first letter of the word that is difficult to verbally produce and retrieve.
