Increase your client's accuracy answering yes/no questions with these activities that target multiple levels of difficulty from short, simple questions to questions about paragraphs.
- Comprehend and answer a variety of yes/no questions
- Identify salient information
These one-page lessons are carefully crafted to accommodate the language needs of clients with neurological disorders. The question complexity increases gradually to successfully advance comprehension skills. The 430 questions give clients lots of practice opportunities. A screening tool helps you identify the client's use of strategies and reasoning patterns prior to designing therapy sessions.
The range of yes/no question types includes:
- short questions (e.g., Can a chair walk?)
- object questions (e.g., Are boxes used when packing items?)
- topic questions about safety, food, occupations, and more (e.g., Does a waiter change tires for customers?)
- two-item comparisons (e.g., Is a cat older than a kitten?)
- pictures with questions
- before and after questions (e.g., Do you set the alarm after you get up?)
- one- and two-sentence statements with questions
- paragraphs with questions

- Rehabilitation is an important part of recovering from a stroke, and the goal is to regain as much independence as possible (NSA, 2005).
- In an extensive review of the literature, Holland, Fromm, DeRuyter, and Stein (1996) found aphasia treatment to be efficacious and benefited the majority of individuals with aphasia in comparison to no treatment groups.
- Therapy should include tasks that focus on semantic processing, including semantic cueing of spoken output, semantic judgments, categorization, and word-to-picture matching (Taylor-Goh, 2005).
- Therapy may target the comprehension and production of complex, as well as simple, sentence forms (Taylor-Goh, 2005).
Just for Adults Yes/No Questions incorporates these principles and is also based on expert professional practice.
