Abstract

Reciprocal Scaffolding Treatment (RST) uses an apprenticeship model of learning that occurs between novices and a skilled partner. This project examined the effect of RST on improvement of word retrieval and conversational content for an individual with anomic aphasia. Novices were graduate student clinicians and the skilled partner was an individual with aphasia, who demonstrated facilitative communication techniques during conversational group treatment conducted by the novices. The individual with aphasia made positive changes in word fluency, correct information units and type-token ratio. Novice clinicians acquired training in facilitating conversational skills from a knowledgeable individual with aphasia.
