"Going over word retrieval difficulties was especially helpful. I liked the breaking up of all the different word retrieval strategies and examples." - C.B.E., 9/21/2016

"I liked the therapy suggestion practices. I enjoyed the characteristics of specific error types; e.g. Error Pattern 2 vs Error Pattern 3." - E.H., 9/13/2016

"The strategies to aid word-finding were most beneficial." - A.G., 8/5/2016

"I have several students with word finding difficulty. I plan to instruct them in the strategies and material provided. We have used bits and pieces of this in the past, but I now have a much better grasp of the material." - C.T., 8/2/2016

"I have several children with severe word finding issues. These strategies will help them and change how I do therapy with them. Initially, I thought the course was a video but did not mind reading it myself. In the end, I preferred that!" - R.R., 7/27/2016

"Well explained, clear, and lots of examples. Excellent course." - S.F., 7/26/2016

"I enjoyed the procedures for retrieval strategy instruction. I would have preferred a live person present it vs. a power point type format." - S.B., 6/20/2016

"I appreciated the suggestions for therapy approaches." - L.H., 6/12/2016

"I like that the info was delivered in an understandable way." - J.C., 6/8/2016

"I liked the examples applications of strategy instruction." - B.P., 5/29/2016

"I liked the examples that were given and real life application. However, I expected more on how to better target semantic substitutions, and I would have liked an audio accompaniment." - S.C., 5/19/2016

"The definition of word finding and 4 stages was most useful. Also, the strategies for each of the three error patterns were really helpful. I would love to see a video of these strategies being put into practice with a student or multiple children." - J.P., 5/3/2016

"I like that there were a lot of examples and self studies challenging you to put it into practice." - H.S., 4/3/2016

"I appreciated the detailed information about assessment and treatment of word retrieval disorders. However, I prefer courses that include an instructor and video examples." - S.S., 3/30/2016

"I thought everything was beneficial. It was new, different, and interesting!" - J.R., 2/29/2016

"I liked being able to move at my own pace, rather than having all of the information read to me. It was also nice to have all of the sections broken into different presentations to allow the course to be easily completed in more than one setting." - M.A.S., 2/26/2016

"I really appreciated understanding how different manifestations of word finding (tip of the tongue, slips of the tongue) correspond to breakdowns in specific parts of word schema activation and how to use targeted interventions based on error type. I like that the course was specific, applicable, evidence-based." - L.M., 2/5/2016

"I liked the diagrams that help explain what is going on in the brain. I have more than a few students who could benefit from word finding therapy, now I have more information to treat them with." - Dr.H.H., 2/3/2016

"The specific strategies and examples to go along with them were most beneficial. This course was great because of the stages involved in retrieving a word and the subsequent strategies involved. I expected more in-depth IEP goals or activities." - J.B., 1/30/2016

"I appreciated the treatment and how well organized the course was. However, I was very disappointed that there wasn't an audio that was paired with the written material." - R.P., 1/24/2016

"I like the case study examples and recommendation to use the WFIP-2 as a reference. Videos of intervention with a student would be helpful." - R.B., 1/15/2016
