Cognitive-Linguistic Sensory Kits

Treatment Tip

I teach an aphasia class and I ask my students to make a cognitive-linguistic sensory kit for use mainly with adults. The kit can be used in treatment and during testing. The kit is simple to make and less expensive than commercially available kits. I also have them make a clinician-devised response sheet to go along with their kit and take pictures of all the items in the kit. Additionally, they put a magnetic and dry-erase board in the kit. The kit is divided into several sections which include: Bathing/Dressing; Tools, Eating, Numbers, Survival Signs, Alphabets, Newspapers, "Real Money" and other daily items.
