Abstract

Evidence has emerged that the long held axiom of the superiority of combined gesture
and verbal treatments for noun production problems in aphasia, may be flawed (Rose and
Douglas, 2001). Rose et al. (2002) suggested that the strategies utilized and the
underlying knowledge bases that are tapped during treatments, may be of greater salience
in determining treatment effectiveness than the modality in which the treatments are
carried out. This paper reports on a series of multiple-baseline studies comparing gesture,
verbal, and combined treatments, aimed at investigating the importance of the source of
noun production error and severity of production impairments on treatment effectiveness.
