Abstract

Semantic therapy for anomia is well established both in research and in clinical practise. Research into phonological therapy is more limited and the results more equivocal. This paper will describe an ongoing clinical study which uses combined phonological and orthographic cues to treat anomia in a case series design. The study includes a single cue and a choice of cue condition, and also assesses the effect of repeated presentation of a picture for naming without cues on word retrieval. The results of therapy for picture naming and for word retrieval in natural conversation will be presented for two participants.
