Abstract

Abstract Automated comprehension training was utilized to present five original language programs to seven aphasic adults. Subjects were required to attend to visual and auditory stimuli and to solve problems through language comprehension by pressing transparent panels over four pictured choices. Subjects were pre- and posttested with an automated probe containing those linguistic structures presented in the training programs. Results indicated significant improvement in the comprehension of certain linguistic structures as measured by performances on repeated program trials and by probe testing. Qualitative information relative to program construction and administration is included in the discussion.
