Title: Facilitating Word-Finding Skills of Language-Impaired Children
Source: Journal of Speech and Hearing Disorders 1989 54(2) :141-147
Year: 1989
Research Design: Single Case Design

Two language-impaired children and their controls participated in a preliminary study designed to examine the effects of treatment on word-finding skills. The 2 children participated in activities designed to improve the elaboration and/or retrieval of the training words, whereas their controls received a therapeutic regimen that did not target word-finding skills. Treatment effects were apparent, with the greatest gains associated with activities focusing on both elaboration and retrieval. Although the findings were promising, several procedural details complicated interpretation of the data.
