Constraint Induced Aphasia Therapy - PresenceLearning

Constraint Induced Aphasia Therapy
The Aphasia NYC Blogger is a great source for all things Aphasia and is authored by Dr. Dorothy Ross, the founder of Aphasia NYC.  One of the site’s latest posts highlights a video of Constraint Induced Aphasia Therapy for stroke patients. The study is a joint collaboration between the Drake Center Rehab Hospital and the University of Cincinatti. The study tests the effectiveness of having stroke patients play the card game, “Go Fish” which forces them to speak and socialize as a part of the game with fellow patients.
