Abstract

This study presents preliminary, Phase I data from a novel, implicit language processing treatment for adults with right hemisphere damage (RHD). The focus of treatment is motivated by two major accounts of common language comprehension problems in adults with RHD: Coarse coding and suppression deficits. The treatment approach is novel in that it aims to facilitate coarse coding and suppression processes implicitly, through contextual prestimulation. The treatment also targets partially domain-general operations with broad implications for language comprehension, rather than specific language structures or forms. Discussion will address the promise and limitations of treatment results for three adults with RHD.
