Abstract

In response to Robey (1994) we argue that his judgment of our study and conclusions (Whurr, Lorch, & Nye, 1992) are inaccurate. We point out that our study was in fact an analysis of the effects of treatment for aphasic patients. Further, the results obtained in Robey's analysis, though obtained via a different strategy of analysis, yielded essentially the same degree of overall treatment outcome effect. Thus, we conclude that while Robey does provide a different model of effect size data organization and measurement, the results are no different and do not in fact contradict our data.
