Disease relevance of Language Therapy


High impact information on Language Therapy

  • Changes in linguistic competence were assessed with the Aachen Aphasia Test in 18 aphasic patients across 8 weeks of spontaneous recovery, 8 weeks of intensive language therapy, and after a follow-up period of 8 weeks without therapy [2].
  • Progress in speech and language therapy was extremely slow during the years prior to treatment with haloperidol [3].
  • The overall PAAT index for subjects scoring at either the upper or lower extremes proved to be valuable in identifying those parents who would be the most and least successful teachers in a home-based language training program [4].
  • In the present study we investigated the change in Delta Dipole Density in 28 patients with chronic aphasia (>12 months post onset) following cerebrovascular stroke of the left hemisphere before and after intensive speech and language therapy (3 hours/day over 2 weeks) [5].
  • Of interest is whether Deaf people with such damage are referred to speech and language therapy (SLT) [6].

Associations of Language Therapy with chemical compounds

  • This indicated that, given in conjunction with language therapy, piracetam improved speech in patients with post-acute and chronic aphasia [1].
  • To determine whether these findings extend to communication deficits subsequent to stroke, we administered dextroamphetamine, paired with speech/language therapy, to patients with aphasia [7].
  • It is to this end that the Speech and Language Therapy Department at Burton Hospital took part in a multidisciplinary project with the NHS Centre for Coding and Classification (NHS CCC) [8].

Gene context of Language Therapy

  • This paper is concerned with three speech and language therapy services from neighbouring NHS trusts and the single education authority they all share [9].
  • The factors that have influenced the current approaches to speech and language therapy education in Great Britain are discussed [10].
  • This paper presents a case of a 7-yr, 6 mo-old girl with Cri du Chat who has received speech and language therapy for five years [11].
  • For the initial sentence triad with each child, an alternating treatments design was used to determine the relative efficacy of the three language training methods [12].
