-compensatory tx
-a treatment for people with SEVERE APHASIA who are limited in oral and written language expression that focuses on the use of drawing as a compensatory means of communication
-principle: drawing is intrinsically nonlinguistic, so it may be useful even in people with severe aphasia; some have argued that drawing exploits use of the intact right hemisphere to facilitate word retrieval
-focus on communicative effectiveness of the drawing over accuracy
-challenge: focusing on accuracy of drawings as opposed to the communicative content conveyed; providing more detail than needed to convey a message results in inefficiency of communication
IMPLEMENTATION:
1) have client identify and recognize categories of objects ("semantic-conceptual knowledge")
2) have client color 9 black and white line-drawn objects with specific colors, like with carrots and peas ("knowledge of object color properties")
3) have client trace around the contour of the black and white line drawings (recognize "outer configuration")
4) ask client to copy geometric shapes
5) have clients fill in the missing parts of a drawn object
6) show client a picture, take it away, and ask them to draw it ("stored representations")
7) name an object with which you have been working, ask client to draw it
8) give client a category name and ask them to draw an item from that category
9) ask client to draw as many items from that category as possible without any examples presented
10) ask client to draw 1, 2, and 3 paneled cartoons representing a story or joke (convey logical sequence)
