Abstract/Description

We report the evaluation of a new automated protocol for the treatment of asyntactic comprehension. This is a follow-up study to the “Microworld for Aphasia” work of Crerar, Ellis, and Dean (1996). An efficacy study involving three patients is reported. All three patients achieved statistically significant improvements in written sentence comprehension as a result of eight hours of treatment focusing on active, passive, and object cleft sentence structures. Treatment effects generalized both to untreated Microworld sentences and to the more naturalistic sentences of the Philadelphia Comprehension Battery ( Saffran, Schwartz, Linebarger, Martin, & Bochetto, 1988), with some further evidence of generalization to spoken sentence comprehension. Treatment effects were obtained with minimal input from a clinician.
