Constraint Induced Aphasia Therapy

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 p-5 bg-lightest mb-3 game, “Go Fish” which forces them to speak and socialize as a part of the game with fellow patients.
