Abstract

The purpose of the research was to explore a combined semantic + multimodal communication program (S+MCP) for an individual with chronic moderate-severe aphasia with coexisting semantic deficits. The effect of S+MCP on his ability to switch between modalities when an initial communication attempt failed was examined during a referential communication task and administration of the CADL-2 with modified scoring. The participant demonstrated increased switching behavior between modalities during both tasks, and increased use of combined modalities (e.g., verbal plus gesture). Clinical implications and future research are discussed.
