This paper describes a controlled therapy study with a 54 year-old man (FB) with apraxia of speech (AOS). The therapy involved articulatory-kinematic techniques and facilitation of lexical retrieval using sets of high-frequency (HF) and low- frequency (LF) consonant-vowel-consonant words (e.g. fish, bus). FB showed a striking reduction in multiple attempts on word production tasks, and this generalised modestly to conversation in the clinic. He also improved more on treated HF words than on matched untreated HF words or LF words (treated and untreated), and appeared to improve more on Repetition than Naming and Reading.
