Research Design: Single Case Design

Describes the computer-assisted visual communication 2.0 computer system (C-VIC) for use by severe, chronic aphasic patients and gives an account of its use in helping a 50-yr-old male, globally aphasic patient in a cooking-related task. In this controlled study, cross-modal comparisons were conducted of acontextual execution of single steps, delivered in C-VIC, spoken, and written modalities. The S was able to respond to commands at criterion level only in the C-VIC condition. Learning appeared to occur without feedback or training.
