Abstract

It has been shown that observable gains can be made in expressive language skills following intensive constraint-induced language treatment (CILT), even in the case of chronic aphasia. For some, barriers to the intensive treatment schedule can be addressed using telerehabilitation. The participant in this study received six weeks of maintenance treatment delivered via videoconferencing following four weeks of intensive CILT and PACE treatment. Of the 24 stimulus pictures targeted, McNemar tests between post-treatment (58% accurate) and three months post-treatment (96% accurate) were statistically significant (p<.01), suggesting that telerehabilitation is a promising mode of treatment delivery for maintenance of language gains.
