Hi there! Are you looking for a lesson plan that can be utilized for clients with aphasia, memory loss, and dementia? If so, you’re in luck! October 10th is Ada Lovelace Day, and I’ve created a versatile lesson plan to celebrate this remarkable woman who is considered the first computer programmer in history!
The lesson plan includes opportunities for reading, paragraph recall, writing/spelling, naming to description, word fluency, phonological component analysis, and semantic feature analysis. In practice, I also add a five-word test for memory using the first 5 items named in the word fluency challenge. These lesson plan tasks include evidence-based activities that can help improve language and cognitive skills in people with communication disorders.
I love a theme and make lesson plans based on holidays, historical events, and famous birthdays almost daily. I have found them to be engaging, interactive, and so much fun with clients experiencing aphasia, mild memory loss, and dementia. You can use this plan with your clients in person or online. It is suitable for different levels of severity and impairment by modifying tasks and cues given to fit your clients’ needs.
The best part is, I will be providing more of these freebies in the future! All you have to do is sign up for my newsletter and you’ll get first access to my lesson plans and many more resources. Just add your email to the form at the bottom of the page. It’s that easy!
I hope you enjoy this offer and find it useful. Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback. I’d love to hear from you via email, FB, IG, or LinkedIn! Have a wonderful day! 😊
