Abstract

In this Phase II rehabilitation study, we investigated the effects of an intensive phonomotor rehabilitation program founded on schema theory and principles of motor learning on verbal production in an individual with severe apraxia of speech and aphasia. In the context of a single-subject, multiple-baseline design, we investigated the effects of treatment on repetition of trained phonemes, generalization to untrained phonemes, CVC real and nonwords and measures of ecologic validity, and maintenance of treatment effects two-months post treatment.  Results show acquisition of trained phonemes, generalization to untrained phonemes, CVC real words and caregiver report, and maintenance of all treatment effects.
