Abstract

Four participants with varying etiologies and severities of aphasia (all chronic phase) received group therapy using semantic feature analysis (SFA) during discourse. Pre- to post-treatment analyses examined lexical retrieval and discourse changes with associated effect sizes.  We hypothesized that lexical retrieval and/or overall communicative effectiveness would improve. Results provide support for these hypotheses and suggest that individuals with differing types of aphasia derive different benefits from this protocol. One participant, also involved in a previous study of group SFA, enabled comparison of treatment effects with and without homework.
