How to help word retrieval difficulties

 

How to help word retrieval difficulties and word finding difficulties.  What are word finding difficulties?  This is when the speaker can not retrieve a word that they know and have used….because it is “stuck” somewhere in their brain…it is “on the tip of their tongue”.  The use of various strategies can help the word finding struggler (WFS) to become a more competent communicator and learn how to use the strategies on her own.

I just posted under word finding help how to use carrier phrases to help the WFS become a better communicator.

And remember to have fun with your little one or big one!

About Kim

My name is Kim Marino and I have been practicing as a licensed speech and language pathologist since 1993. I work on Long Island providing diagnostic evaluations and services to children from birth to age 21. My experience is vast and am proud to say that I work with children that may present with articulation and phonological concerns, oral motor feeding concerns, Down Syndrome feeding, cognitive rehabilitation, auditory processing delays, receptive language delays, cleft palate feeding and sound development and expressive language delays. Most importantly, I am the mother of four amazing children and am happily married to my childhood sweetheart. I feel blessed to have my four children and so lucky to share this journey in life with my husband. I always had it somewhere in my head that I wanted to develop a blog or a website of some sort so that I could provide families with an additional resource....so that parents could help their little ones become a better communicator. And as I was developing this blog....I realized that I also needed to share the stories about my life and my children....and the funny things along the way that help to keep me smiling. Whether you are a working mother or not...finding balance between home, children and life can be a challenge....I hope that my blog helps to bring a smile to your face..and also some tools to help you help your little or big one. I hope you enjoy! Kim
