 About This Book

A common difficulty reported by individuals of all ages is the inability to remember names and words that they know and have said before.  When individuals have this name- or word-finding difficulty, they often report that they have the word on the "Tip of their Tongue".  They know it, but can't think of it.  If you are one of these individuals, It's on the Tip of My Tongue  will provide you with easy to use strategies to help you remember elusive names and words.  In this book you will learn to:

  • recognize three types of word finding difficulties;
  • self evaluate your own speaking to identify your word-finding difficulties;
  • use memory strategies to help you remember names of family members and friends and known academic and work related vocabulary;
  • reduce word finding errors at personal, social, professional, and school activities, and 
  • create word-finding accommodations in academic and work settings.
