Language Processing Disorder
AGE GROUP: 3-8 years
Several children with learning disabilities suffer from a Language Processing Disorder which significantly impedes their learning and motivation. One of the key aspects of a Language Processing Disorder is a difficulty in accurately comprehending and interpreting spoken information and a particularly low language processing speed. This resource provides you with a structured set of graded, full-colour worksheets to address your students’ receptive language deficits in an engaging and interactive manner.
The book features a ready-to-use set of multi-step tasks that progressively become more challenging, thus enabling speech pathologists, special educators and SEN teachers to respond to their students’ individual needs and ability levels more effectively. The full-colour pictures on the worksheets are sure to spark your learners’ interest and motivation.
Laid-out in a genuinely user-friendly format the worksheets of the book are ideal for tablet use. They can also be easily printed out and flexibly used with a wide variety of learners.
- A theoretical framework section including an introduction to Language Processing and intervention ideas
- 120 worksheets aimed at enhancing comprehension skills
- 600 instructions for students to decode and follow, ranging from simple to complicated ones
- A Progress Assessment Form to systematically monitor and assess your students’ progress.
The activities comprise 4 levels of difficulty and provide extensive practice on a wide range of concepts including: sizes, colours, shapes, numbers, adjectives, prepositions, local expressions, temporal expressions, hypothetical expressions and conjunctions. These concepts are combined in a number of different ways to make up both simple and more sophisticated tasks.
Children with Language Processing deficits find themselves at a worryingly disadvantaged position at school, when compared to their peers. Using the resources of the Language Processing Skills series, you can provide them with the structured and enjoyable activities they need to overcome the comprehension difficulties that take away their confidence and learning motivation.
