Abstract

This study examined the effects of an adapted, written version of Treatment of Underlying Forms (TUF; Thompson et al., 1997; 1998) on the spoken and written sentence production and comprehension of three adults with varying severities of nonfluent aphasia. A single subject, multiple baseline design across behaviors was used to measure acquisition and generalization of trained (object- and subject-extracted embedded questions) and untrained sentence structures (object- and subject-extracted matrix questions, passives). Results indicated that this writing treatment protocol evoked cross-modal generalization to spoken output in all participants. Data will be discussed with regard to factors influencing TUF’s generalization potential.
