Effects of two lexical retrieval cueing treatments on action naming in aphasia.

Abstract

The effects of two cueing treatments, Phonological Cueing Treatment (PCT) and Semantic Cueing Treatment (SCT), were examined with three chronic speakers with aphasia. The effects of treatment on action naming were measured with the use of single-subject experimental designs. The participants had received PCT and SCT to improve object naming in a previous investigation and had responded positively to both treatments. In the current study, Speaker 1 received SCT, Speaker 2 received PCT, and Speaker 3 received both SCT and PCT. Action naming improved for Speakers 1 and 3, but not for Speaker 2. These findings indicate that PCT and SCT may have utility in facilitating action naming for some speakers with aphasia but that the effects of these treatments may vary across grammatical form classes (e.g., nouns versus verbs).
