Abstract

A study by McNeil et nl. reported no generalization effects in two individuals with aphasia following application of a word finding treatment in which subjects were trained sequentially on lexical items arranged by form class. The present investigation examined, in one of the two subjects from the original study, whether training on lexical items from a variety of form classes concurrently would result in greater response generalization than was observed previously in this subject. Results replicated earlier findings with positive acquisition and maintenance effects and little evidence of generalization to untrained items within or across form classes.
