Phonological impairment is a common core deficit in individuals with left perisylvian damage resulting in the classic aphasia syndromes (Broca’s, Wernicke’s, and Conduction aphasia). The impairment is particularly evident on written language tasks that require transcoding of sound-letter correspondences, such as nonwords, but many individuals with these chronic “phonological aphasias” have limited residual ability to write real words as well. We report here on a treatment sequence intended to strengthen phonological skills in individuals with aphasia and global agraphia. Treatment outcomes from a case series of 16 participants demonstrated the value of this approach for written and spoken language.
