Abstract

We present an anomia treatment study using a modified contextual priming procedure for two participants with different underlying functional deficits. Our aim was to explore whether additional semantic tasks can increase gains from contextual priming treatment. The treatment included repeated cycles of spontaneous naming attempts and repetition of target names within sets of semantically related and unrelated items together with additional picture-to-word matching tasks and phonological (reference) tasks. The major finding is that the modified contextual priming procedure can provide not only significant short-term but also longer-term facilitation of target naming even in the case of a lexical-semantic deficit.
