Hi there! Today was my first day having a session with an adult who has had a stroke- she was two years post CVA and has awesome receptive skills. That being said, we're mainly going to work on confrontational naming, and my supervisor came up with this AWESOME activity for it, and all you need is a deck of cards! I just want to share it, and maybe in exchange, get some ideas in return or resources to check out to get some more activities like this. You assign each color a category- for example, red is fruits and black is cities, and then as you lay each card down, the client has to appropriately name the card. After 5 cards, pick them all up and hide them, and have the client recall their choices. If you really want to make it tricky, you can have them reverse the order of recall, as well. You can use the cards for basically any category, too- vegetables, clothes, countries, states, numbers, three letter words, etc!
So, do you have any go-to, fun activities that target verbal expression and confrontational naming? I have worksheets I can look to, but really, worksheets get boring REALLY quick! Thanks for any input, and have a good one!
