Abstract

The hallmark of a successful rehabilitation program for aphasia is generalization. We report a treatment program for word processing impairment in aphasia that incorporates methods to promote acquisition and response generalization, as well as generalization of treatment effects to language tasks other than those used in treatment (Kalinyak-Fliszar, Kohen, & Martin, 2011). The program also includes a second feature to promote generalization based on the complexity account of treatment efficacy (CATE; Thompson, Shapiro, Kiran, & Sobecks, 2003; Kiran, 2008).
