The intensity of aphasia therapy has been a key clinical question. The aim of this case-series study was to compare the outcome of intensive and non-intensive therapy in the relearning of words for people with aphasia. Eight participants took part in a study comparing the intensity of delivery of the therapy. Participants received two courses of the same therapy (each lasting 10 sessions) delivered either intensively or non-intensively. Therapy consisted of confrontation naming with progressive… Expand
Therapy-Induced Neuroplasticity in Chronic Aphasia After Phonological Component Analysis: A Matter of Intensity
TLDR
Both short-term intensive and standard, non-intensive, PCA treatment can improve word retrieval in chronic aphasia, but neuroimaging data suggest that improved naming is associated with different neural activation patterns in the two treatment conditions. Expand
Dosing of a cued picture-naming treatment for anomia.
TLDR
Given an intensive and saturated context, anomic individuals were surprisingly quick at relearning to produce problematic words successfully and most participants demonstrated retention of the gains 2 months after treatment ended. Expand
Intensive Versus Distributed Aphasia Therapy: A Nonrandomized, Parallel-Group, Dosage-Controlled Study
TLDR
Aphasia Language Impairment and Functioning Therapy resulted in superior clinical outcomes on measures of language impairment when delivered in a distributed versus intensive schedule, contributing to the understanding of the effect of treatment intensity in aphasia rehabilitation. Expand
The role of intensity in constraint-induced language therapy for people with chronic aphasia
TLDR
CILT administered in both intensive and distributed dosages resulted in positive changes in aphasia severity and discourse, adding evidence to the still inconclusive role of intensity to CILT. Expand
ASSESSING CANDIDACY FOR INTENSIVE LANGUAGE THERAPY: A PRELIMINARY STUDY
TLDR
Results indicated that participants performed significantly poorer on two of the four verbal tests, and on an overall measure of verbal communication on the Time 2 assessment as compared to the Time 1 assessment, have clinical implications for selecting candidates for intensive language therapy regimes. Expand
The impact of dose on naming accuracy with persons with aphasia
TLDR
Results are in line with principles of neuroplasticity and demonstrate that repeated practice, without feedback, can produce significant and persistent changes in naming ability for some persons with aphasia. Expand
Predicting the outcome of anomia therapy for people with aphasia post CVA: Both language and cognitive status are key predictors
TLDR
Both cognitive and language (naming or phonological) skills were found to be independent predictors of therapy outcome and pre-treatment naming ability also predicted gain after the anomia therapy. Expand
Factors influencing treatment-induced language recovery in chronic, post-stroke aphasia
Although there is evidence to support the efficacy of aphasia rehabilitation, individuals’ response to treatment is often variable. It is currently not possible to determine who will respond to aExpand
An exploration of aphasia therapy dosage in the first six months of stroke recovery
TLDR
A novel approach is reported for identifying key treatment ingredients and detailing the dosage delivered within an early aphasia rehabilitation trial using a model of cumulative intervention intensity (CII). Expand
Aphasia treatment: Intensity, dose parameters, and script training
  • L. Cherney
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • International journal of speech-language pathology
  • 2012
TLDR
The review illustrated the complexity of quantifying the dose of comprehensive treatments that target multiple modalities and utilize a variety of different strategies and served to illustrate Baker's contention that intensity alone is insufficient without also considering the active ingredients of the teaching episode.

TLDR
Intense therapy over a short amount of time can improve outcomes of speech and language therapy for stroke patients with aphasia. Expand
Constraint-Induced Therapy of Chronic Aphasia After Stroke
TLDR
Data suggest that the language skills of patients with chronic aphasia can be improved in a short period by use of an appropriate massed-practice technique that focuses on the patients’ communicative needs. Expand
Constraint-Induced Therapy of Chronic Aphasia After Stroke
TLDR
CI aphasia therapy led to significant and pronounced improvements on several standard clinical tests, on self-ratings, and on blinded-observer ratings of the patients’ communicative effectiveness in everyday life. Expand

TLDR
The results indicate that the CIAT protocol used in this study may be a useful tool in language restoration after stroke, and these initial findings should be confirmed in a larger, randomized study. Expand
