Abstract

A single subject, multiple baseline design across behaviors and subjects was implemented to examine the effect of Response Elaboration Training (RET) with two persons with fluent aphasia. Treatment was applied to picture descriptions and to personal recounts and its effects were evaluated in terms of production of correct information units (CIUs). For both participants, treatment effects were evident for only one treatment condition, with increases in efficiency observed in picture descriptions. Positive changes were noted on functional measures and post-treatment assessment.
