Background: Many studies of clients with 'pure' anomia (i.e. word finding difficulties in the absence of semantic impairment) have found a lack of generalization to the naming of items that are not treated in therapy. One explanation for this result is that the phonological output lexicon consists of discrete entries which are not as interconnective as those in the semantic system (Miceli, Amatrano, Capasso, and Caramazza 1996). However, more recent studies suggest that therapy which requires… Expand
Treating naming impairments in aphasia: Findings from a phonological components analysis treatment
Background: A new phonologically based treatment that we developed for addressing naming deficits in aphasia—the phonological components analysis (PCA) treatment—is presented. The PCA was modelledExpand
Semantic vs. word-form specific techniques in anomia treatment: A multiple single-case study
Abstract This study compared a semantic and a phonological/orthographic approach to the treatment of word-finding difficulties in a case-series of ten individuals with aphasia, using a cross-overExpand

Whether or not semantic or phonological therapy differentially impacts on outcomes for people with a range of different aphasic profiles when given both therapies is elucidated. Expand
Phonological naming treatment for a Koreanspeaking patient with severe fluent aphasia
Abstract Whereas much recent research has focused on developing and examining the effects of neuropsychological model-based naming treatments for aphasic word-finding difficulties, few of theseExpand
Word discrimination therapy: A new technique for the treatment of a phonologically based word‐finding impairment
Background: The majority of cognitive neuropsychological treatments for impairments in phonological encoding utilise some form of phonological cueing or support. Most commonly, the participant isExpand
The facilitative effects of drawing and gesturing on word retrieval for people with aphasia
The facilitative effects of drawing and gesturing on word retrieval for people with aphasia." MA (Master of Arts) thesis, has been approved by the Examining Committee for the thesis requirement forExpand
Investigating the effect of a semantic therapy on comprehension in aphasia
Background: While evidence on the use of semantic therapy to improve word retrieval has increased (Whitworth, Webster, & Howard, 2005), the impact of semantic therapy on comprehension itself has notExpand
How many words should we provide in anomia therapy? A meta-analysis and a case series study
Aims: This study investigated whether the number of words provided in naming therapy affects the outcome. A second aim was to investigate whether severity of anomia should be used to determine theExpand
Therapy for naming disorders: Revisiting, revising, and reviewing
Background: Impairments of word retrieval and production are a common and distressing feature of aphasia, and much clinical time is devoted to attempts at their remediation. There are now manyExpand
Anomia rehabilitation viewed from a pragmatic- functional paradigm. A case study
The aim of this paper is to examine the effects of a therapeutic programme based on a pragmaticfunctional paradigm. Elements of the therapeutic programme have been selected from the heuristic planExpand


Therapy for naming disorders (Part I): Principles, puzzles and progress
Abstract This paper takes the form of a selective review of studies of therapy for aphasic-naming disorders. There is a bias in the literature towards studies involving the use of semantic tasksExpand
The Treatment of Anomia Resulting from Output Lexical Damage: Analysis of Two Cases
This study describes a treatment project, carried out with two anomic subjects, RBO and GMA failed to name pictures correctly as a consequence of damage to phonological lexical forms; their abilityExpand
The contrasting effects of a semantic versus a formal—semantic technique for the facilitation of naming in a case of anomia
Abstract Facilitation techniques deemed ‘semantic’ in nature appear to be superior to other techniques in the remediation of anomia (Howard et al. 1985a). In such techniques, however, informationExpand
Therapy for word-finding deficits: More on the effects of semantic and phonological approaches to treatment with dysphasic patients
Abstract The word-finding difficulties of dysphasic patients are assisted by providing semantic or phonological cues about objects and their names. Experiments that have evaluated a singleExpand
The autocue? self-generated phonemic cues in the treatment of a disorder of reading and naming
Abstract This study describes a therapy programme that aimed to improve oral reading and spoken naming in a deep dyslexic patient by teaching the patient grapheme-phoneme correspondences. This aimExpand
Tapping the lexical store of the adult aphasic: analysis of the improvement made in word retrieval skills.
The argument that in amnesic aphasia there is no reduction in the lexical store itself; but rather an impairment of the ability to retrieve bits of information from the Lexical store is supported. Expand
Examining the facilitative effects of rhyme in a patient with output lexicon damage
A theory-driven treatment was designed to facilitate access to the impaired output lexicons of a 47-year-old woman with aphasia resulting from a left parietal haemorrhage. In the context of aExpand
Word-Finding Difficulties and Learning Transfer in Aphasic Patients
The results support the hypothesis that disorders responsible for word-finding difficulties would consist, in certain cases at least, much more in the access to lexicon than in the items themselves and they point therefore to the need of modifying traditional therapy methods. Expand
A case study evaluation of the effects of different techniques for the treatment of anomia
Abstract This study sought to demonstrate the relative effects of different techniques for treatment of the severe anomia of a 67 year-old aphasic woman. Both a semantic and a word form problemExpand
Advantage of semantic language therapy in chronic aphasia: A study of three cases
Abstract The aim of this study was to determine the effects of semantically and of phonologically oriented therapies on word-finding recovery in chronic aphasic patients, more than 3 years afterExpand
