Word Connections


Word Connections

Product no.: ENP7139

Some adults experience problems communicating whether it is due to aphasia / dysarthria following a stroke, a learning disability or a progressive illness. Lack of confidence, confusion and frustration can occur leaving the person feeling left out of conversations and friendships etc. 

 

At Activate Speech we have designed a 'Word Connections' pack to help the person understand and use words/phrases/sentences. This pack helps the person make connections between items or associate one item with another. This acivity is important as we do this on a daily basis. The person can practice the skill of verbal reasoning, making judgements, and discuss why they make their choices. Humourous or emotional language can also be used to explain why certain responses are incorrect.

 

Simple, step by step instructions are used on how to encourage the person to firstly understand the word/phrase/sentence and then use it in communicating with others, whether, through some form of augmentative/alternative system such as gesture, technology or by speaking.

 

The person may be attending a Speech and Language Therapist or on a waiting list. You can still use this pack in the meantime to compliment or support their progress. It is always recommended that the person is referred to a Speech and Language Therapist.
