Word-Finding Intervention Program - 2nd Edition

Word-Finding Intervention Program - 2nd Edition


Price: $92.00




The Word-Finding Intervention Program (WFIP-2) provides professionals with specific interventions to address a learner's word-finding skills. Like its predecessor, the WFIP-2 uses a three-pronged approach to word-finding intervention: retrieval strategy instruction, self-advocacy instruction, and word-finding accommodations.

  • Comprehensive word-finding intervention program for ages 6 years through young adult. 
  • Retrieval strategies are matched to word-finding error patterns, and includes activities that encourage generalization of retrieval strategies to school, home, and social environments.
  • Addresses differential diagnosis of word-finding error types and evidence-based mnemonic retrieval strategies.
  • Includes lesson plans, specialist’s forms, and recommendations to integrate technology.


After assessment of a learner's word-finding skills, retrieval strategies are matched to a learner's word-finding error patterns, and learners are presented with activities that encourage generalization of these retrieval strategies at school, home, work, or play.


The WFIP-2 includes important changes and additions. The second edition is improved in its overall organization and user-friendly presentation. It also offers better retrieval strategy selections and Word-Finding accommodations. You'll get lesson plans, specialist's forms, and integration of technology recommendations throughout. Specific improvements include:

  • New research-supported mnemonic retrieval strategies
  • New assessment discussion of the differential diagnosis of Word-Finding error types
  • New organization according to error patterns typically observed in individuals with Word-Finding difficulties
  • Technology recommendations for retrieval strategy instruction,Word-Finding accommodations, oral presentations, and written language
  • Improved, user-friendly lesson plans and student study forms
