Rebstock, Alicia M.; Wallace, Sarah E. – Communication Disorders Quarterly, 2020
Primary progressive aphasia (PPA) is a neurodegenerative condition characterized by language and cognitive decline. Word-retrieval deficits are the most common PPA symptom and contribute to impaired spoken expression. Intense semantic interventions show promise for improving word retrieval in people with PPA. In addition, people with PPA may learn…

Cruice, Madeline; Botting, Nicola; Marshall, Jane; Boyle, Mary; Hersh, Deborah; Pritchard, Madeleine; Dipper, Lucy – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2020
Background: Discourse assessment and treatment in aphasia rehabilitation is a priority focus for a range of stakeholder groups. However, a significant majority of speech and language therapists (SLTs) infrequently conduct discourse analysis, and do not feel competent in doing so. Known barriers identified in other countries, specifically a lack of…

de Beer, Carola; de Ruiter, Jan P.; Hielscher-Fastabend, Martina; Hogrefe, Katharina – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2019
Purpose: People with aphasia (PWA) use different kinds of gesture spontaneously when they communicate. Although there is evidence that the nature of the communicative task influences the linguistic performance of PWA, so far little is known about the influence of the communicative task on the production of gestures by PWA. We aimed to investigate…

Johnson, Fiona M.; Best, Wendy; Beckley, Firle Christina; Maxim, Jane; Beeke, Suzanne – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Conversation therapy for aphasia is a complex intervention comprising multiple components and targeting multiple outcomes. UK Medical Research Council (MRC) guidelines published in 2008 recommend that in addition to measuring the outcomes of complex interventions, evaluation should seek to clarify how such outcomes are produced,…

Purpose: Individuals with mild aphasia often report significant disruption to their communication despite seemingly minor impairment. This study explored this phenomenon through examining conversations of a person with mild aphasia engaging in argumentation--a skill she felt had significantly deteriorated after her stroke. Method: A person with…

Ferguson, Neina F.; Evans, Kelli; Raymer, Anastasia M. – American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology, 2012
Purpose: The effects of intention gesture treatment (IGT) and pantomime gesture treatment (PGT) on word retrieval were compared in people with aphasia. Method: Four individuals with aphasia and word retrieval impairments subsequent to left-hemisphere stroke participated in a single-participant crossover treatment design. Each participant viewed…

Beckley, Firle; Best, Wendy; Beeke, Suzanne – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Communication strategy training (CST) is a recognized part of UK speech and language therapists' (SLTs) role when working with a person with aphasia. Multiple CST interventions have been published but, to date, there are no published studies exploring clinical practice in this area. Aims: To investigate UK SLTs' current CST practices.…

Layfield, Claire A.; Ballard, Kirrie J.; Robin, Donald A. – EBP Briefs (Evidence-based Practice Briefs), 2013
Clinical Question: For people with aphasia following a stroke, is group therapy shown to be more effective on communication outcome measures reflecting impairment, activity, and/or participation than individual therapy or no therapy? Method: Review of treatment efficacy research for group intervention in aphasia Study Sources: Cochrane Database of…

Thiel, Lindsey; Sage, Karen; Conroy, Paul – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2017
Background: Improving email writing in people with aphasia could enhance their ability to communicate, promote interaction and reduce isolation. Spelling therapies have been effective in improving single-word writing. However, there has been limited evidence on how to achieve changes to everyday writing tasks such as email writing in people with…

Carragher, Marcella; Sage, Karen; Conroy, Paul – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2015
Background: Capturing evidence of the effects of therapy within everyday communication is the holy grail of aphasia treatment design and evaluation. Whilst impaired sentence production is a predominant symptom of Broca's-type aphasia, the effects of sentence production therapy on everyday conversation have not been investigated. Given the…
