Abstract

The effects of two written naming treatments on severe anomia were examined in an individual with chronic, severe global aphasia and apraxia of speech. Both the Semantic (ST) and Context/Story (CT) treatments involved reviewing the semantic features of target words; ST involved a sentence completion task and CT involved a story completion task. A multiple baseline, within-participant single-subject design was used to compare the two treatments. Results of both treatments indicated improvements in writing accuracy and speed, and cross-modal generalization to spoken naming and discourse. Implications for context-based treatments and for prioritizing writing as a treatment modality will be discussed.
