Abstract

We document the effectiveness of a treatment for written verb and written sentence production deficits in an individual with moderate to severe aphasia and apraxia of speech. Using a multiple-baseline experimental design, we trained our speaker on a set of intransitive verbs and consequently subject-verb sentences and on a set of transitive verbs and subject-verb-object sentences. A control task, letter spelling to dictation, evaluated the specificity of the intervention. Improvements were noted for the trained sets of verbs and sentences but not the control task. Other clinically significant quantitative and qualitative improvements are also reported.
