The Efficacy of Computer-Provided Reading Treatment for Chronic Aphasic Adults.
Katz, Richard C.; Wertz, Robert T.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v40 n3 p493-507 Jun 1997
Effects of computer-provided reading activities on the language performance of 55 adults with chronic aphasia were studied. Results suggest that computerized reading treatment can be administered with minimal clinician assistance; improvement on computerized tasks generalized to non-computer language performance; improvement resulted from the language content of software and not from stimulation provided by the computer; and computerized treatment was efficacious.
