Advanced Descripto-Cards developed by Edna Carter Young from work by Carolyn Weiner and Rachel T. Cartwright, aim to improve functional communication for adults with language disorders. Caregivers reintroduce vocabulary using 187 color cards and 20 black and white photograph cards of familiar objects and sequences. Seven levels of challenge include single object photos, object and location, object and action, object and complex location, sequencing cards, reasoning, and problem solving. Each level has suggested accuracy goals and 26 record keeping forms.
Recommended for those with language disorders caused by aphasia, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, or a head injury.
The complete program includes a 72 page manual, 187 full-color photo cards, 20 black and white photos, 89 vocabulary cards, 13 reproducible record keeping sheets, tabbed divider cards, and a storage box.
