Abstract

Script training is a treatment designed to increase fluent speech production for specific functional purposes for individuals with nonfluent aphasia. A multiple baseline across behaviors single-subject design was used to examine how treatment outcomes from a whole-task script training method compare with outcomes from part-task (linguistic-based) method. Specifically, we examined response to treatment, generalization to functional contexts, and general increase in language output. Results indicate that a whole-task method resulted in fluent script production that generalized to functional contexts. The part-task method resulted in fluent-production of script sentences in the training context but no generalization to spontaneous speech.
