Alphacats: Alphabetic Lists for Speech Communication Training

Cost: $40.00 ($35.00 each for orders of five or more copies)

Alphacats was developed to provide teachers/clinicians with a set of materials suitable for use with older children, young adults, and adults. The Alphacats exercises are specifically designed to be used as "warm-up" activities in speech communication therapy, and their level of complexity can be adjusted to suit the individual needs of clients.

Alphacats consists of 60 alphabetic lists, which cover a diverse range of topics including famous people, food, common objects, countries, cities, health, language, and science. The lists are designed to be presented to clients for identification, and they can also be used as the catalyst for conversational training, and other theme-related activities. Most of the lists consist of single words (A is for apple, B is for banana, etc.,) but some involve the use of short phrases and sentences. Examples of such topics include proverbs (A is for "All's fair in love and war," B is for "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder," etc.), and nursery rhymes and children's songs (A is for "As I was going to St. Ives," B is for "Baa, baa black sheep," etc.) Alphacats has been trialed extensively with a wide range of subjects over the past year, and the response to this new material has been overwhelmingly positive.
