Abstract

Restorative interventions are frequently preferred as augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) interventions are thought to impede neural recovery (Pulvermuller & Berthier, 2008; Weissling & Prentice, 2010). But, clinical observations suggest AAC interventions may improve aphasia (Dietz, Weissling, Griffith, & McKelvey, 2012). The purpose of this study was to compare the influence of a novel AAC and traditional restorative (TR) intervention on linguistic recovery and neural reorganization.
