Aphasia rehabilitation: Modulating cues, feedback, and practice


The purpose of this study is to examine how different treatment variables (cues, feedback, task difficulty) and practice conditions (blocked/random, massed/distributed) affect acquisition, maintenance, and generalization of script learning in chronic aphasia.  Subjects will practice 90 minutes per day at home, 6 days per week for 3 weeks, as well as visit RIC for training and evaluations.
