In this study a computer-based remediation program for distinct disorders of phonological decoding and encoding in aphasia is evaluated. Based on models of speech perception and production, impairments in phonological processing may appear at different levels: phonetic, sublexical and lexical decoding and encoding. The general treatment goal is to modulate the underlying deficit by varying specific parameters of the practice material (lexicality, phonemic similarity, sonority). In earlier case studies, we could show the efficiency of this approach in phonological encoding impairments. Here we present a patient with conduction aphasia showing both pre- and post-lexical processing deficits.
