HELP® for Vocabulary

Ages 8-Adult

Written in the best-selling format of the HELP series, these vocabulary activities have:

  • expansive, timeless content

  • goal-driven activities
  • a gradual increase in complexity within and between activities
  • application to a wide range of developmental and acquired language disorders

Strengthen core vocabulary and expand vocabulary with a variety of learning formats.  Clients develop word flexibility and learn strategies that help them learn new vocabulary efficiently.  The activities cover four skills areas:

Developing Basic Vocabulary
Clients complete sentences and identify words by descriptions and definitions.  Word difficulty ranges from simple vocabulary (e.g., barber, giraffe, and hospital) to higher-level vocabulary (e.g., pediatrician, porcupine, and aquarium).  Clients supply verbs, adjectives, and adverbs from definitions.  More lessons target word associations and antonyms and synonyms.  

Defining Words
Clients define words in a variety of ways: by category, function, form, place, and components.  They learn to use root word, prefixes, and suffixes to define words.

Applying Vocabulary Skills
Clients use words in various contexts as they choose words to complete sentences, change the meaning of sentences, and complete paragraphs.  They make judgments about word choices in sentences and use words to "paint" a picture.  Activities also target synonyms and alliterative phrases.

Curriculum Vocabulary
Learn vocabulary for following directions, mathematics, English, science, geography, history, and the arts.
