Model-Based Semantic Treatment for Naming Deficits in Aphasia.
Drew, Ruby L.; Thompson, Cynthia K.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v42 n4 p972-89 Aug 1999
A semantic-based treatment was used initially to train naming of nouns in four adults with aphasia. Treatment responses and error patterns indicated treatment resulted in improved naming of both trained and untrained items for two participants. Two other participants showed improved naming only after phonological information was added. Results support an interactive-activation model of treatment. (Author/DB)
