Abstract

We report a single-subject longitudinal case study of a reading and writing treatment applied to a patient with chronic conduction aphasia and associated phonological dyslexia. Our approach, developed by Friedman and Lott (2002), focused on production of bigraph-phoneme correspondences. This multiple-baseline treatment alternated between oral reading and writing to dictation, beginning with sound-blending nonword bigraphs. As treatment accurately progressed, training shifted to two-syllable words and phrases. Outcomes demonstrated significant improvement in the patient’s ability to orally read and write to dictation. These findings support Freidman and Lott’s (2002) original approach to reading and writing remediation among patients with phonological dyslexia.
