Abstract

Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the utility of treating verbal STM to maximize utilization of trained/residual sublexical skills for reading/spelling. Two participants with aphasia and phonological alexia/agraphia received a verbal STM treatment combined with a phonological awareness protocol. We hypothesized that the addition of verbal STM training to the phonological treatment would circumvent residual deficits in mapping sublexical knowledge onto written language processing following phonological treatment, providing a more effective and/or efficient treatment outcome in terms of functional reading and writing skills.
