Abstract

The iPad and other tablet devices have enormous potential for personalized home practice to augment aphasia rehabilitation. The current study investigates the utility of an iPad-based home practice program, implemented post intensive therapy, for people with chronic aphasia. Six of eight subjects are participating in the home program. All participants maintained advances made on words trained during the intensive treatment and additionally were able to learn new words solely by practicing on the iPad. The results have implications for the use of home programs and tablet devices in people with chronic aphasia. Selecting appropriate candidates for tablet-based technology is discussed.
