 Using the single subject design, we investigated the function of notice with praise as a reinforcer in severe aphasia and dementia cases.

 Our results suggest that there was an increase in the frequency of action in response to the simultaneous presentation of notice with praise. The effectiveness persisted for a short time after the cessation of notice with praise. We concluded that notice with praise functioned as a reinforcer in two patients with severe aphasia and severe dementia.
