Abstract

Left hemisphere stroke often results in aphasia characterized by anomia and alexia. Research has shown that treatment focused at the level of the phoneme and phoneme sequences improves anomia (Kendall et al., 2006; Kendall et al., 2008) and phonological/deep alexia (Conway et al., 1998; Kendall et al.,1998; Kendall et al., 2003). This study presents pre and post treatment data for one individual from a group study who presented with mild aphasia and phonological alexia.  Results indicate that multi-modal treatment focused at the level of the phoneme and phoneme sequences can improve naming and reading abilities in an individual post-stroke.
