Mary J. Pitti, Clinical Assistant Professor and Clinic Director in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, recently published Problem-Solving Photo Scenes, a therapy tool designed to help people with disabilities improve recall, problem-solving, and reasoning skills.

Problem-Solving Photo Scenes is a set of 75 cards depicting everyday problems faced by people with disabilities in their home and community. Each card features a photo of a situation with five critical thinking questions printed on the reverse side. The questions lead clients to identify potential obstacles, come up with solutions, and find parallels in their day-to-day life. The cards are suitable for individuals or groups and questions can be modified to meet the cognitive levels of each client. 

Problem-Solving Photo Scenes is available to purchase online
