The primary goal of the present study was to investigate the efficacy of a multisensory reading approach (Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program) for the treatment of clients diagnosed with acquired alexia. All three participants improved their decoding skills as an effect of the LiPS program but with distinguishable characteristics believed to relate to their type of acquired alexia. The participant with surface alexia demonstrated the greatest learning curve as compared to the participants with deep or phonological alexia. All three participants showed a positive effect on cognitive-communicative abilities other than reading. Findings will be related to the connectionist approach to reading.
