Abstract

Historically, error inconsistency has been considered a defining feature of AOS. While recent studies have demonstrated consistency of certain errors over time, changes following intervention have not been reported. Therefore, we examined error consistency across successive repetitions of the same utterance following 120 hours of Multimodal intensive Treatment (MMiT). Three males with AOS and aphasia produced three repetitions of 10 target words before and after treatment. SLP evaluations of transcribed responses revealed increased consistency of error location across all participants and increased consistency in error number across successive responses. Further investigation of MMiT in relation to these findings is warranted.
