thesis / dissertation description
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of the Name That! App as a treatment for aphasia. There are a variety of treatment approaches available. This study will look into the benefits of each approach as well as testing one approach in particular: Semantic Feature Analysis. In addition, there are a limited number of apps available that use this approach and there is very little research into the efficacy of them. Conducting research will help determine the benefits of using a Semantic Feature Analysis approach as well as the benefits of working with the Name That! App. The current study will apply the use of this app in a therapy setting with a person with aphasia.
