Using Word Associations in Speech Therapy

Word associations have been used in speech therapy for ages. We use them in word finding activities, as semantic prompts when a patient has difficulty answering questions, to increase vocabulary, as a memory strategy, and much more!

These word association presents were created as a gift to you for your ongoing support and encouragement. I hope you can use them in your school or adult therapy setting.

I like to use this type of activity in a co-treatment with Physical or Occupational therapy. It is great for language and also attention. If a patient is standing, have them match the associated pairs of words on a table or standing frame.

You may be able to complete some on-site documentation while the patient works along side of you, matching the cards.

Printing on bright, colorful paper (like these Astrobrights) make the activity more visually engaging. (Affiliate link)
