We designed this packet to stimulate visual skills related to verbal attention. The goal of this packet is to engage all aspects related to verbal and visual attention skills. We believe Verbal and visual attention skills are essential to all cognitive functions, especially those around social cognition and language. This packet will start by challenging your patients with two different adaptations of our digital exercise Private Eye. In this first exercise, your patient will have to find perfect circles. The following exercise will challenge their ability to recognize the correlation between words and their meaning to determine which words do not belong. The following exercise is a modification of Elephant Memory. This modification requires your patient to study a scene and answer questions.
The last two exercises are focused directly on verbal attention. This last section starts with an adaption of Restaurant. This adaption aims to engage your patient’s ability to compare and contrast two recipes. Looking side by side, your patient will identify what was different between the recipes. Finally, your patient will have to read a passage and find the typos and errors in this modified version of This Story is Full of Blanks.
This packet is an excellent resource for teachers who want to challenge their students’ ability to process visual-verbal information. Therapists have also used this packet to help stimulate patients with brain injuries that affect their verbal attention skills or aphasia.
