Abstract

Treatment of sentence production deficits in aphasia has been approached from several different perspectives. This study applies a syntactic priming approach, alternating sentence repetition priming trials with picture description trials, to treatment for an individual with a moderate to severe Broca’s aphasia with severe agrammatism. This priming approach, using a simple active subject-verb-object sentence, led to improved syntax and sentence production abilities for all four of our dependent measures: verb inflections, inclusion of subject-verb-object elements, correct word order, and use of well-formed sentences. Ideas for future studies using this syntactic priming treatment are discussed.
