Phonology Resource Pack for Adult Aphasia
Resource Pack for Adult Aphasia
This easy-to-use therapy resource breaks down the phonological skills needed for language into familiar tasks across the modalities of spoken language, pictures and written language. Graded in difficulty, it consists of separate workbooks for ease of use and portability, with ready-to-use programmes and worksheets for clinic and home practice. This huge resource provides flexible materials to help aphasic clients understand, learn and practice the phonological skills needed for expression. Certain tasks correlate directly with sub-sections in the PALPA (Psychological Assessment of Language Processing in Aphasia). With more than 300 photocopiable illustrations, this is a valuable and easy-to-use addition to the therapy materials already used in the impairment-based approach to aphasia therapy. Word and picture rhyme activities are graded into easy, moderate and difficult tasks to use in therapy or to photocopy to create worksheets for home practice.
Special featuresof this book are: very few resources available for phonology work with adult aphasics; supports established assessment material eg, PALPA; contains an extensive, photocopiable picture library; and accessible style and format.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"This pack would be a valuable resource for therapists involved in aphasia therapy". - Heather de la Croix, Principal SLT, Therapy Weekly "This will be a welcome resource to all therapists who like to offer psycholinguistically motivated impairment therapy. The generous appendix allows for pre-exercise familiarisation and the consistency of format between exercises makes it easy to use. Therapists working in an outpatient or rehab setting will certainly get their money's worth." - Jon Hunt and Lauren Caris, Speech & Language Therapy in Practice "The wookbooks are photocopiable worksheets with a large, legible font. There are clear, good quality, black and white line drawings...it provides numerous models along specific lines and could be readily accessed by assistants working under SLT supervision." - Jenni Crisp, Community Physical Disability Team, Northumbria Healthcare Trust, Secretary British Aphasiology Society, RCSLT "The introduction to the pack is clear and the aims are articulated succinctly. Book 3 covers written judgements, which is by far the simplest to use. The most positive aspect of this pack is the many practical ideas, which can be adapted to different therapy styles and session plans. In conclusion, this pack is useful if a therapist wants to quickly get hold of pictures and words to use in sessions." - Natasha Greensite, SLT, Connect, BJTR
