Semantic and contextual writing treatments for severe anomia. In Clinical Aphasiology Conference: Clinical Aphasiology Conference (2008 : 38th : Jackson Hole, WY : May 27 - June 1, 2008) / : (2008).
The effects of two written naming treatments on severe anomia were examined in an
individual with chronic, severe global aphasia and apraxia of speech. Both the Semantic
(ST) and Context/Story (CT) treatments involved reviewing the semantic features of
target words; ST involved a sentence completion task and CT involved a story
completion task. A multiple baseline, within-participant single-subject design was used to
compare the two treatments. Results of both treatments indicated improvements in
writing accuracy and speed, and cross-modal generalization to spoken naming and
discourse. Implications for context-based treatments and for prioritizing writing as a
treatment modality will be discussed.
