Abstract

Speech/language production disorders following stroke can be resistant to treatment. Carry-over of treatment effects outside of the therapy room often has been negligible. The mechanisms underlying these production problems are not well understood, but one factor may be an inability to inhibit words in the mental lexicon that are semantically and/or phonologically related to the target. We report a case study of a treatment for improving the client’s ability to inhibit competing responses. The outcome measure was a spontaneous picture description task. Post-treatment, the client demonstrated an increase in the number of words produced during the picture description task.
