Summary:

Someone who perseverates may repeat elements of the previous response or even the complete response, even though it is no longer correct. Perseveration is associated with damage to the frontal lobes and is often observed by SLPs and other therapists while testing confrontation and generative naming, writing, and drawing. Stimulus-bound behavior and environmental dependency syndrome are also associated with frontal lobe damage. People who exhibit SBB may be compelled to use objects the way the objects are designed to be used, even when instructed not to do so. They are drawn to an object and use it accurately, but at inappropriate times. Environmental dependency syndrome is a condition in which the immediate environment may trigger more complex and integrated (albeit still illogical and inapt) response. This article explores the characteristics of perseveration, SBB, and EDS and strategies for intervention. 

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to educate speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists about perseveration, a condition that is associated with damage to the frontal lobes and is often observed by SLPs and other therapists while testing confrontation and generative naming, writing, and drawing. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify at least three types of perseverative responses
  • Cite at least three examples of stimulus-bound behavior
  • Discuss at least two approaches for ameliorating stimulus-bound behavior and environmental dependency syndrome
