Purpose: For use in language therapy with adults who have moderate to severe language disorders
Age: 18+ (adults)
The Language Activity Resource Kit 2nd. ed (LARK-2) provides materials that are useful in therapy addressing right hemisphere dysfunction and in speech production tasks aimed at improving intelligibility.
The LARK-2 objects are associated with specific actions, making them helpful in treating patients with aphasia and other language deficiencies resulting from brain trauma or neurological disorders.
Without subscribing to any particular theory or approach, the LARK-2 materials help the patient achieve a functional level of communication. These activities represent a small number of the communicative activities that allow the language-impaired patient to achieve independence.
