Hi SLPs and fans thereof! Are you looking for a lesson plan that can be used for clients with aphasia, mild memory impairment, and dementia? If so, you’re in luck! October 18th is Alaska Day, and I’ve created a versatile lesson plan to celebrate the northernmost state! 🏔️🎉🎇
This lesson plan includes evidence-based activities that can help improve language and cognitive skills in people with cognitive-communicative disorders. The lesson plan includes opportunities for:
- Paragraph recall
- Writing & spelling
- Naming to description
- Word fluency
- Phonological component analysis
- Semantic feature analysis.
- Delayed recall & list learning – I often add a five-word test for memory using the first 5 items named in the word fluency challenge.
- Structured conversation
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, most importantly, FUN to use with my clients. You can use this plan in person or via telehealth. It is suitable for different diagnoses and levels of impairment by modifying what tasks are given and what cues are provided.
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 lesson plan and find it useful for your practice. Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback via email, FB, IG, or LinkedIn! I would love to hear about how your clients responded! Have a wonderful day! 😊
