Treatment and Generalization of Complex Sentence Production in Agrammatism.
Ballard, Kirrie J.; Thompson, Cynthia K.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v42 n3 p690-707 Jun 1999
This study, with five adults diagnosed with Broca's aphasia with agrammatism, evaluated the acquisition and generalization of complex-sentence production using Linguistic Specific Treatment (LST) and the utility of syntactic theory in evaluating treatment effects. The study's findings support the use of LST, which applies syntactic theory to predict patterns of generalization, as an effective treatment approach. (Author/DB)
