Enhancing Written Communication in Persons with Aphasia: A Clinical Trial

Objective

The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether a computerized speech-language treatment delivered by a virtual therapist (Oral Reading for Language in Aphasia (ORLA) + Writing) results in improved written communication skill of study participants with aphasia (i.e., difficulty with the comprehension and expression of spoken and written language). We are conducting a randomized clinical trial that compares ORLA + Writing to a sentence level oral reading treatment (ORLA).
