This book was written to address the considerable uncertainty "out in the field" regarding how to evaluate and treat persons with dementia. Often, therapeutic techniques selected do not take the person's diagnosis and staging into mind. Subsequently, this can lead to pessimism regarding the efficacy of doing therapy with persons with dementia. Throughout this text, the authors stress the importance of using evidence-based interventions and how doing this can lead to predictable and positive outcomes. Softcover, 252 pages (7 x 10"). Printed in the USA.Topics include:
For Speech-Language Pathologists working with clients on categorization skills and other speech and language goals.
For SLPs, OTs, PTs, and other care partners of persons with dementia.
Picture Categories Galore & More:
"This is the product I've been looking for! This program is comprehensive and complete: no need to purchase additional materials to teach categories." – SLP
"I think PCG&M is a great therapy tool for building vocabulary/semantic knowledge. It is also useful for building other areas of language depending on the activity. It comes with an options card that gives you 6 hierarchical activities that address various areas of language. I was able to address goals with my students, such as, labeling, stating function or attributes, identifying similarities (stating category/convergent thinking), generating vocabulary that belongs to a category (divergent thinking) and recalling items (with and without visuals). I was able to address syntax and morphology by having the students use target words and/or category in sentences. I was also able to use it for higher-level tasks, such as comparing and contrasting items." – SLP
"It is a very organized and well-thought-out tool, in terms of the pictured objects. The pictures are realistic, which is more efficient and easier for my students across grades. Also, the picture cards are divided into three sets that get progressively harder. I was able to use it with k-5 students. I especially liked the curriculum based vocabulary items (math, punctuation, grammar etc) for my upper-grade students." – SLP
"I really like the product and I have used the cards in a variety of ways during my sessions, highlighting a range of concepts. Similarities and differences, descriptive skills, critical thinking, main ideas/themes are some of the things that I touch upon. The product helps some of my students expand their thinking, moving from a black-and-white view to a more mature, I-can-see-the-gray areas view." – SLP
"Categories Galore is a good set of vocabulary cards that has many categories, such as fruits, veggies, clothes, transportation, etc." – Marri W., SLP
