The third edition of the Word-Finding Intervention Program provides speech–language pathologists with specific interventions to address word-finding difficulties. The WFIP-3 uses a three-fold model for word-finding intervention: (1) retrieval strategy instruction, (2) self-advocacy instruction, and (3) word-finding-based differentiated instruction. The primary goal of each component is to facilitate learners’ success in oral communication in school and at home.

The WFIP-3 is a flexible resource, designed for use with a wide age range and organized according to the differential diagnoses of clients’ word-finding skills. You’ll get comprehensive lesson plans for retrieval and self-advocacy instruction. Specific lessons also help to implement differentiated instruction in the classrooms for learners with word-finding difficulties. A new section on assessment now makes it easier to evaluate and track student progress, and access to online reproducible materials is included.

Since 1993, the Word-Finding Intervention Program has become very popular and has been used in numerous schools, centres, and hospitals by speech–language pathologists, special education personnel, and reading teachers.
