Verb Network Strengthening Treatment (VNeST) is an evidence-based technique that focuses on using verbs to target word retrieval and discourse for persons with aphasia. This intervention has shown promising evidence for language production and generalization of lexical retrieval to trained and untrained verbs (Edmonds & Babb, 2011; Edmonds et al., 2014; Edmonds et al., 2009). This resource saves you time and includes everything you need to begin using VNeST with your clients.
