Abstract

Melodic Intonation Therapy was used to train functional phrases for a Spanish speaker with expressive aphasia. Words and phrases were selected by the participant (SA) and his family. MIT patterning was matched to the Spanish prosody. Two sets of words (2-3 syllable and 4-6 syllable) were trained in succession after a stable baseline was established. SA met criterion on both sets. Participant and family reports indicate improved expressive language for trained words and phrases.
