Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present data from 4 individuals who participated in a 60-hour phonological rehabilitation trial for word retrieval deficits.  The treatment is based on the notion that phonological representations are distributed across acoustic, semantic, orthographic and articulatory motor representations.  So, through the application of a multi-modality (orthographic, acoustic, tactile, visual, articulatory motor) treatment, phonemes and phoneme sequences will be reinstantiated in the neural network resulting in improved activation of lexical-semantic knowledge and word retrieval abilities.  Results showed treatment effects in all 4 individuals and generalization to untrained stimuli in 2 individuals.
