Activity Steps


Note: ASHA CEUs cannot be reported to ASHA unless your ASHA member number is included in your profile.

The authors present the findings of a study that replicated an experiment designed to use category learning to examine attentional allocation. Findings included relevance to clinical settings where visual stimuli are presented as instructional, supporting and/or compensatory tools. The authors recommend further research to understand how individuals with aphasia engage with platforms such as alternative and augmentative communication devices, and whether there are ways to enhance factors such as attentional allocation.
