Abstract

This study examined the potency of various components of common treatments for verb retrieval deficits in Broca’s aphasia. We examined the effects of semantic, word repetition, gesture, and combined semantic plus gesture treatments in five single-subject multiple-baseline across conditions designs. Participants with word form deficits showed significantly improved verb production on trained items while control items showed minimal change, and generalization to picture description was demonstrated with modest generalization to discourse tasks. However, the participant with semantic verb impairment showed a minimal response to treatment. Participants demonstrated a unique degree of response to the different treatment components.
