Complexity in Language Learning and Treatment

This journal self-study focuses on complexity in treatment of language deficits. Complexity is discussed as it pertains to treatment of disorders in three language domains: phonological, lexical-semantic, and syntactic. In all domains, greater treatment gains result when more complex rather than simple language material is the focus of treatment.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • discuss the issue of complexity in language learning and its relationship to treating language disorders
  • assess a novel approach for treatment of lexical retrieval deficits in aphasia in which treatment begins with complex, rather than simple, lexical stimuli
  • discuss complexity in the context of treatment for sentence production (and comprehension) impairments in agrammatic aphasia
