Abstract

There is wide agreement in the literature that significant improvements in aphasia therapy can only be obtained with high frequency of treatment (Bhogal, 2003; Basso, 2005). In practice, long term treatment is often provided only with low frequent. Therefore there is a need for development and evaluation of supervised home training to support the learning process. The language trainer B.A.Bar is most suited for self-practice at home, especially for activation of vocabulary and short communicative phrases. B.A.Bar is an electronic device which is able to record, store and replay spoken language. The objective of the present single case study was to investigate efficacy of home training with B.A.Bar.
