Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) is a stage between healthy aging and dementia. Changes in language function (e.g., connected speech, naming ability) that may further inform both diagnostic and intervention approaches to identifying and treating people at risk of or suspected of having dementia of the Alzheimer’s type. Therefore, it is important to...

Aphasia assessment is the initial step of a well-structured language therapy. Therefore, it is reasonable to underline that the assessment tools need to consider the typological and cultural characteristics of the language. A group of international researchers in the Collaboration of Aphasia Trialists have been adapting the Comprehensive Aphasia Te...

Background and Purpose Optimizing speech and language therapy (SLT) regimens for maximal aphasia recovery is a clinical research priority. We examined associations between SLT intensity (hours/week), dosage (total hours), frequency (days/week), duration (weeks), delivery (face to face, computer supported, individual tailoring, and home practice), c...

Article
Background: People with aphasia (PWA) have been shown to encounter difficulties in processing sentences with non-canonical (i.e., derived) word order. Although previous research points to similar impairment patterns in non-canonical structures in aphasia across many languages, there is only little agreement among authors why PWA experience these im...

This preliminary study investigated verbal and visuospatial memory in aphasia. The presence of memory limitations in persons with post-troke aphasia (PWA) has been well documented (e.g. Caplan, ichaud, & Hufford, 2013; Nickels, Howard, & Best, 1997; Salis, Kelly, & Code, 2015; Sung et al., 2009). Short-term memory (STM) refers to the capacity of st...

Background: Speech and language therapy (SLT) interventions for people with aphasia are complex-for example, interventions vary by delivery model (face-to-face, tele-rehabilitation), dynamic (group, 1-to-1) and provider. Therapists tailor the functional relevance and intervention difficulty to the individual's needs. Therapy regimes are planned at...

Imageability is a psycholinguistic variable that indicates how well a word gives rise to a mental image or sensory experience. Imageability ratings are used extensively in psycholinguistic, neuropsychological, and aphasiological studies. However, little formal knowledge exists about whether and how these ratings are associated between and within la...

Studies investigating voicing onset time (VOT) production by speakers with aphasia have shown that nonfluent aphasics show a deficit in the articulatory programming of speech sounds based on the range of VOT values produced by aphasic individuals. If the VOT value lies between the normal range of VOT for the voiced and voiceless categories, then it...

Depending on the language area affected, names of aphasia types differ in the literature. Among them, fluent types of aphasia are generally associated with comprehension deficit varieties, fluent speech with grammatically tangled sentences, and impaired repetition and naming abilities. The other cited hallmark is the paragrammatic aspects of patien...
