Abstract

Individuals with chronic aphasia and apraxia can benefit from computerized treatment. However, given the variability among those individuals, treatment programs need to be customized to address specific deficits and needs. The current study examined whether visual cues provided by a computer program could enhance speech comprehension and verbal expression. Two participants practiced naming functionally relevant items in two conditions: auditory-visual and auditory-only. Both participants made more rapid and consistent improvements in the auditory-visual than in the auditory-only cueing condition. More research is necessary to investigate how the visual processing skills affect the ability to utilize visual cues for speech practice.
