Abstract

A previous report suggested visual feedback provided by electromagnetic articulography (EMA) may help patients recover speech motor control in apraxia of speech (AOS) following stroke (Katz, Bharadwaj, & Carstens, 1999). The study used frequent (100%) feedback, a condition thought to increase the rate of skill acquisition but diminish maintenance and generalization. The present study used a multiple-baseline design in the short-term treatment of consonants produced by an individual with aphasia and AOS. Frequent and infrequent feedback (50%) conditions were included to determine whether feedback scheduling properties reported in the limb motor literature apply to the treatment of speech motor control.
