Abstract

This investigation was designed to examine the effects of Semantic Feature Analysis (SFA) applied to the retrieval of action names in aphasia. A multiple baseline design across behaviors and subjects was used to examine the effects of treatment with four participants with chronic aphasia. Results revealed improved ability to name targeted verbs for three of the four participants with no generalization to non-targeted verbs. The results demonstrate that SFA treatment may have potential for promoting improved action naming for some speakers with aphasia, but that treatment may not generalize to untreated verbs.
