Abstract

Choral reading has been used to improve reading comprehension in patients with aphasia. This study illustrates the efficacy of choral reading with three subjects with chronic aphasia. Pre-treatment and post-treatment assessments were conducted. Also, a multiple baseline design across stimuli was used. Subjects were trained on one group of sentence stimuli until 90% accurate oral reading for two consecutive sessions was achieved on session probes. Treatment was then initiated on an untrained group of stimuli. Results indicated la nguage improvements; however, different language modalities improved across subjects. Plausible explanations for the differential cross- modal effects of choral reading are discussed.
