Abstract

Response elaboration training (RET) is a “loose training” program designed to increase the length and information content of verbal responses of patients with aphasia (Kearns, 1985). Patients have responded robustly to RET regardless of severity level or type of aphasia (Wambaugh, Wright, and Nessler, 2012). One difficulty faced by clinicians seeking to use RET is participants in research studies have usually been treated at a frequency and for a duration that far exceeds standard clinical practice. In order to examine RET from a “clinical perspective,” the researchers carried out a selective meta-analysis of RET focusing on a “window of treatment” that would be commensurate with standard clinical practice.
