This paper reports on the use of electropalatography (EPG) in the treatment of a patient with severe acquired apraxia of speech. At 2 years post-onset and after a period of conventional speech and language therapy, the patient, AD, presented with severe speech production problems affecting articulation, phonation and resonance. Treatment using EPG is(More)
Two groups of children with contrasting types of developmental language disorder (phonologic-syntactic and semantic-pragmatic) were compared with a group of children with high-level autism and with a control group of normal children on tests of social cognition (theory of mind; social comprehension; and detection of eye direction). The similarly poor(More)
Two groups of children with contrasting types of developmental language disorder (phonologic-syntactic and semantic-pragmatic) were compared with a group of children with high-level autism and with a control group of normal children on a broad battery of neuropsychological tests, known to be sensitive to left-right hemisphere damage. Significant differences(More)

This study quantified the number of deictic forms in the conversational speech of non-brain-damaged control, right hemisphere-damaged, and fluent and non-fluent aphasic subjects. The relationship between use of deictic terms and performance on single-word level lexical tests was examined, together with the number of deictics with increasing clause length.(More)

The evidence of lexical-semantic deficits following right, non-language-dominant hemisphere injury was assessed using word (or verbal) fluency tests. Two groups of subjects (non-brain-damaged controls and right hemisphere-damaged patients) were indistinguishable in their performances on convergent lexical tasks. Subjects completed verbal fluency tasks by(More)
OBJECTIVE The effectiveness of self-help materials may be constrained by failures to undertake recommended exercises or to deploy the techniques that one has learned at the critical moment. The present randomized controlled trial investigated whether augmenting self-help materials with if-then plans (or implementation intentions) could overcome these(More)
