Abstract

This investigation was designed to elucidate the effects of repeated practice treatment on sound production in AOS and to determine if the addition of rate/rhythm control to treatment provided further benefits. A combined multiple baseline and ABCA design was employed with five speakers with chronic AOS and aphasia. Accuracy of articulation of target items in probes served as the dependent measure. Substantial improvements in articulation were associated with repeated practice treatment for three of the participants, with minimal gains observed for the remaining two participants. Rate/rhythm control resulted in additional gains for two of the participants.
