This book offers a programme of sematic-lexical development and rehabilitation through a series of fun games and activities, with the help of hundreds of colour images. In this way an array of cognitive components of oral language are practiced at different levels and in a flexible, fun way, and transition to the basic functional aspects of learning is encouraged.
The book contains words and images belonging to 15 semantic classes — clothing, animals, actions, food, jobs, means of transport, household objects, sports, things that you open, things that you turn on, things that you can read, things that you can cut, geometrical shapes, periods of the year and of life, and by-products — and enables the following objectives to be pursued:
• widening of lexis;
• development and improvement of semantic skills;
• development of skills of categorisation and sub-classification;
• development of skills needed to compare, forecast, guess and brainstorm.
Semantic cards is designed for nursery school children (from 4 years and over), primary school children and older pupils with lexical-semantic and categorisation difficulties. Teachers, speech therapists and neuropsychomotor therapists will find it really useful in both educational and rehabilitative settings.
