Semantic complexity in the treatment of aphasic naming disorders

According to the semantic complexity account of treatment efficacy in the treatment of aphasic naming disorders (Kiran, 2007), training complex items (e.g., atypical exemplar of the category: animals, starfish) results in generalization to less complex items within the treated category (e.g., atypical exemplar of the category: animals, elephant). Aim of this ongoing multiple single case intervention study is to replicate and extend this treatment method and to look at the various factors that influence the sucess of treatment for individuals with aphasia.
