Abstract

This paper presents initial data on the influence of phonomotor treatment on word retrieval accuracy and error type from pre- and post-treatment confrontation naming probe responses produced by 10 individuals with aphasia. This study is part of a Phase II clinical rehabilitation research program which trains real- and non-words, comprised of low phonotactic probability and high neighborhood density phoneme sequences, to improve word retrieval in 30 subjects with left hemisphere lesion and aphasia. The treatment program is a logical advance on existing Phase I and Phase II clinical rehabilitation research (Kendall et al 2003, Kendall et al 2006a, Kendall et al 2006b, Kendall et al 2006c, Kendall et al 2008) and is motivated by a parallel distributed processing model of phonology (Nadeau, 2001).
