Semantic feature analysis (SFA) treatment with an extended length of treatment phase was implemented to remediate word retrieval and other language skills in 3 chronically, fluent aphasic adult males. Results revealed that naming of treated nouns improved and generalized to untreated nouns. Improvement also was observed on post-treatment testing for the Western Aphasia Battery, particularly on the naming tasks as well as the Boston Naming Test and the Test of Adolescent/Adult Word Finding. Generalization to discourse measures was observed for one participant. Social validation measures pre- port-treatment indicated noted increases by spouses and participants for all 3 individuals.
