Students learn to identify and organize attributes and to use that information to make word definitions. The step-by-step lessons work well for students with language processing disorders and English Language Learners.

Busy clinicians rely on the Stimulus Pictures for Assessment, Remediation, and Carryover (SPARC) series for:

  • loads of pictures and practice opportunities
  • convenience and portability
  • systematic progression of discrete skills
  • no student reading requirement

The book is organized into sixteen themed units (e.g., fruits, furniture, zoo animals, and sports). Each unit has five two-page activities. Each activity consists of a page of pictured items and a page of corresponding stimuli for the instructor.

Each unit targets four skill areas:

  • Understanding Attributes- identify important attributes such as category, size, color, parts, and uses by pointing, naming, and using prior knowledge
  • Naming, Sorting & Identifying Attributes- brainstorm items in a category, use a picture scene to name eight items in a category, sort items by one or two attributes, and identify one or two common attributes for a small group
  • Comparing Two Members of a Category- describe how two items are alike and different
  • Understanding & Completing Definitions- identify the critical features of items and use them to make word definitions
