Phonological Aphasia: Syllable Count and Syllabary Structure
This pickup, doable protocol, containing four separate treatment activities, will provide you with the concepts, activities, scaffolding ideas, and tools to address the phonological elements of aphasia with a focus on syllable structure. Often overlooked, a client's ability to access and encode the phonological word form (sounds, syllable count, intonation, etc) is critical in generating speech and maximizing aphasia recovery. Additionally, this should assist in minimizing the effects of acquired apraxia. The design of the protocol will help improve the cognitive underpinnings of effective speech production including attention and working memory for words and syllables. This protocol is telepractice-friendly.
