Verb Network Strengthening Treatment (VNeST) is a semantic treatment for aphasia, developed by Lisa Edmonds, Ph.D., CCC-SLP (Edmonds, 2014a). VNeST is a verb-focused treatment and has been shown to promote specific and generalized word retrieval skills (Edmonds, Mammino, & Ojeda, 2014). The purpose of this resource is to provide a step-by-step guide for providing the treatment. Note that when completing the VNeST protocol, it is not necessary to follow the procedure step-by-step every single time. Rather, it is important to understand the theory behind the steps and adjust for your patient as needed (Edmonds, 2014b).
