Abstract

A rehabilitation approach to aphasia is described and tested on one aphasic patient. This approach seeks to restore, partially or fully, the impaired specific communicative ability. The patient's sentence comprehension deficit and deficit in abstract-word comprehension were treated by specially developed methods, and it is concluded that the positive effects noted for both these deficits, can only be ascribed to the treatment given.
