How it works
Every Version of Talk Around IT is based on a widely practiced speech and language therapy technique called Semantic Feature Analysis (SFA). SFA is commonly used to improve word finding skills. We aim to help word finding by providing opportunities to practice using spoken and written cues as well as circumlocution (i.e. talking around a word). This activity is designed to be used with a friend or family member. As they help you to improve your word finding, they learn skills and techniques that will enhance their ability to communicate with you.
At the start you will see a picture that you should try to name. You will also see six questions about the semantic features of the object and a button that gives you an example. In addition there is a set of cues to help you to find the word, including the first syllable of the word and a sentence to complete by using that word.
There are several versions of Talk Around IT. This is Talk Around IT Nature which includes nature objects such as animals and plants.
In this ‘Free’ version you can access three pictures and the semantic features that may help you to name the objects. Each of the full versions present 50 pictures.
