Abstract

We compared the results of three treatment approaches designed to improve verb production in non-fluent aphasia. All three approaches shared features of Constraint Induced Aphasia Therapy, including high intensity and an emphasis on verbal output. They differed in whether their procedures utilized a pre-selected list of verbs or not and drill-based tasks versus informative interaction. Results from three individuals demonstrate that treatment protocols that exert tight experimental control by working with a limited number of target words may not be the most effective way of bringing about changes in non-treatment, real-life verbal interactions for people with non-fluent aphasia.
