Abstract

Most communication interactions are carried out at the discourse level. Clinically, it is important and ecologically valid to develop treatment protocols aimed at improving discourse ability in adults with aphasia. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of scripting information components for narratives, one type of discourse ability, in adults with aphasia. This multiple probe design across participants and behaviors included two participants with Broca’s aphasia and one with conduction aphasia. Data analyses indicated that the protocol was effective in increasing the amount of information relayed in response to picture stimuli.
