Abstract

Provision of language therapy to persons with aphasia is an intensive, dynamic process. Qualitative analyses of single sessions can serve as relevant data when monitoring progress in therapy, i.e. changes in performance over time. These analyses substantiate the application of the principles of experience-dependent neural plasticity and aid in specifying the parameters of ‘what makes a therapy’. In this study, analysis of a single session provided to a severely impaired person with Broca’s aphasia (♀, 36 years old) demonstrates that even within a single session performance improves and learning takes place and this improvement is maintained until the next session.
