Nearly all individuals with aphasia have difficulty with word retrieval. Attentive Reading and Constrained Summarization (ARCS) is a behavioral therapy that targets linguistic processes at the discourse level (macro-structure), unlike treatments that may target language at the word or sentence level (micro-structure). This paper will address the procedures and outcomes of using the ARCS treatment with an individual who is four years post-stroke and has a diagnosis of Wernicke’s aphasia.
