“Treatment of word retrieval: contrasting results from 2 RCTs”

This talk will describe the results of two partly parallel randomised controlled crossover treatment trials. Both contrasted a treatment emphasising semantics with a treatment concentrating on phonological information. One trial was with people with stroke aphasia and the second with normal children with word finding difficulties. Both trials found improvement only with treated items, but they differed in whether the results could be predicted from the background tests probing related cognitive functions.
