Copy And Recall Treatment (CART) Worksheets (80+ pages and 120 sample target images)
CART is a lexical writing treatment technique focused on improving writing skills for communication in individuals with severe aphasia (Beeson, 1999; Beeson, et al., 2002). Stimuli selected should be personalized and relatable to each client. Practice includes copying target words and progresses to writing words from recall. The CART protocol includes training functional words in sets of five and incorporates a daily homework component six days a week (Beeson, et al., 2002). The activities in this packet were adapted from and are based on the CART protocol (Beeson, et al., 2002).

This packet was created to promote recovery of cognitive-linguistic deficits for individuals returning home or to an assisted/independent living facility. Use of functional real-world tasks in therapy helps generalize skills learned to everyday situations. Functional therapy is based on a patient-centered approach and it is important to consider your clients’ day-to-day responsibilities. This packet includes a case history form, functional activities, practice ideas, and compensatory strategies. To improve functionality and promote independence, modify materials based on individual needs and use real materials/scenarios when possible.
Sections include: goal writing examples, home practice and ADL activities, 60 + high-quality colored images, and an additional 20 ideas for real-world practice.
