Stimulate word retrieval and rapid recall with lessons organized by these areas:  
 
Automatic Associations
Recall words through familiar associations like rhymes, songs, and story titles; common foods, people, nouns, and verbs; name brands; abbreviations, geographical words; and similes, idioms, and proverbs.
 
Themes
Descriptive phrases help clients recall 24 words for each theme.  The themes are everyday subjects like clothing, school, furniture, forest, and transportation.  
 
Definitions
Retrieve a variety of words based on their brief definitions.  Clients identify objects, actions, and situations; identify items by their word class; and supply opposites and synonyms.  
 
Answering Questions
Answer wh- questions with word banks, without word banks, and in fill-in-the-blank formats.  
 
Parts of Speech
Supply nouns, verbs, adjectives, and prepositions using word banks and fill-in-the-blank formats.  
 
Using Context
Practice word finding with common conversational statements, themes, inferences in sentences, common sayings, and survival words.
